EWI announced that it will host “The Future of Nuclear Technology in the U.S.” in partnership with the Greater Cleveland Partnership on September 21, 2010 at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.
The event will be an educational forum on the future of nuclear power in the U.S. Discussions will include current realities of nuclear technology, common misperceptions about nuclear power, global investments in nuclear energy, and future needs of the domestic nuclear energy industry.
The forum will include subject-matter experts speaking on technology, the environment, economic impact on U.S. manufacturing, and public policy. Keynote speakers for the event are Dr. Patrick Moore, co-chair of the Clean and Safe Energy (CASEnergy) Coalition and a co-founder and former leader of Greenpeace, and Karen Alderman Harbert, President and CEO of the Institute for 21st Century Energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The CASEnergy Coalition is a national grassroots coalition of nearly 2,500 members which strives to bring facts rather than emotional hyperbole to the discussion, by promoting the economic and environmental benefits of nuclear expansion as part of a diverse clean energy portfolio.
EWI’s goal is to share fact-based information about nuclear energy to begin the process of breaking down misperceptions about the country’s largest base load clean energy source and enable the industry, decision makers, and the general public to make informed decisions about the future of nuclear power in the U.S.
Businesses involved in advanced energy, consumers, and policymakers with an interest in nuclear energy are encouraged to attend the forum. For more information, or to register, visit http://www.nuclearforumcleveland.com/.
