The Center on Global Energy Policy at the School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University presented a panel discussion on the future of nuclear power on November 8, 2013. Argonne Distinguished Fellow Dr. Yoon Il Chang was among the panelists.

This event focused on important questions including: how can the lessons from the Fukushima disaster be used to contribute to convincingly safer construction and operation of nuclear reactors? Can new technology – such as Integral Fast Reactors or Small Module Reactors – help restore public confidence and improve the commercial viability of nuclear power? What pathways exist for global collaboration on high-level waste management technology? In the evolving energy and climate landscape, how should society compare nuclear power with other electricity sources with respect to carbon emissions, waste streams, public health effects, safety, water-intensity, etc.?

The event was held on November 8, 2013 at Columbia University. A video of the panel discussion can be viewed below.
