How Nuclear is Solving the Energy Rubik’s Cube

Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

At home and abroad our modern life is requiring more and more energy. At the same time, our world is demanding a cleaner form of energy. This panel will discuss how an “old”, and oft-misunderstood form of energy – the densest yet to be harnessed by humans – can be looked to again to solve for three issues at the same time: Abundant energy. Reliable Energy. Clean Energy.

Panelists will delve into issues regarding nuclear energy’s potential to provide reliable energy, while also helping to decarbonize in the face of Texas’ and the world’s growing industrial needs - from semi-conductors, and data centers, to artificial intelligence. Is the U.S. really ready to embrace nuclear energy again? Find out in this exciting discussion!
