Session VII - Establishing infrastructure and mitigating risks for successful nuclear development
Lack of understanding in key stakeholder groups has been a serious impediment to the acceptance of a new nuclear generation. The standardisation of reactor design, new plant construction performance and increased efficiencies can be combined with improved stakeholder communication to ensure the central role of nuclear in the future energy mix.
