2020 SPEAKER SERIES

The Future of Nuclear Energy

MCEC Speaker Series Session10 Title Slide 11.05.2020

Nuclear energy is valued as a zero-carbon electricity generator. Visible nuclear power is based on 1950’s technology that was optimized to power ships and submarines. But the technology in place today does not forecast the future! This session explores the potential of nuclear power in a post fossil fuel world. With power plants designed from scratch for civilian applications, fast-neutron technology has the potential to safely power civilization for thousands of years. Given the vision of sustainable nuclear power, this webinar then explores the choices confronting Maryland (and others) today.
