During the discussion, Russian and international experts in quality management will touch upon pressing issues related to building reliable supply chains at nuclear facilities. The participants will also consider approaches to ensuring security while reducing costs in the course of procurement activities.
The roundtable will bring experts from Russia and around the world together to discuss the key trends in the development of carbon-free energy generation, current and promising business models in the renewable energy market, and possible areas for the development of energy storage units. Special attention will be paid to the place that small nuclear power reactors might take in the future energy balance.
During the discussion, participants will talk about how representatives of different countries see the key effects and values of nuclear technologies and why customers today often choose atomic solutions. Topics for discussion will include the principal socio-economic effects of the use of nuclear technologies and how the benefits of nuclear technologies can help achieve sustainable development goals.
Participants in the roundtable will discuss the environmental criteria that affect the choice of power generation type, the environmental aspects of transitioning to a closed nuclear fuel cycle and issues of involving civil society in the dialogue on the environmental safety of nuclear facilities. A case study of Rosatom State Atomiс Energy Corporation will be used to consider the approaches and main results of environmental protection measures currently being implemented.
Representatives of ROSATOM, the IAEA, the World Nuclear Association as well as countries that are developing or planning to develop and improve nuclear power programmes will share their views on key issues for the development of nuclear infrastructure. In particular, they will discuss the challenges faced by a country that plans to develop a national nuclear power programme.
The product is designed to provide foreign customers with the ability to ensure the safe operation of nuclear power plants during all the stages of the NPP life cycle. In addition, the use of the ‘e-shop’ can significantly reduce the time and cost of a project’s implementation and streamline the process of issuing relevant licenses and permits by the national regulatory body.
The discussion “The Sustainable Development of Cities: The Nuclear Industry’s Contribution” will feature an international panel of experts with extensive managerial experience at the global, national and local levels representing international organizations, government agencies and the corporate sector.
