The recent events in Japan have heightened public concern over the safety and feasibility of using nuclear power. This concern, coupled with the data fog that has been created by media outposts looking to put a unique perspective on the situation, has created an atmosphere where the lines between fact and conjecture are extremely blurred. At EWI, we pride ourselves on being unbiased and fact-based. When we are not the technology experts, we reach out to those who are to verify the data that impacts our business.
As a trusted partner and collaborator for EWI, we want you to have access to the data regarding the situation at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in a form that is understandable to a non-Nuclear Engineer. As such, the EWI Energy Center has organized a conference call and webinar that will give you access to experts from the nuclear industry. They will provide you with the chain of events, without sensationalism or hypotheses, regarding what has transpired in Japan over the last week and half. You will hear directly from the experts and will have an opportunity to get your questions answered.
