The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is engaging with leading figures in the energy sector to explore new ways to address today's challenges. The next in‑depth conversation will be with Shawn Tupper, Associate Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada, and NEA Director‑General William D. Magwood, IV on 25 November 2020.
Canada has a full-spectrum industry and nuclear energy is an important component of the country's electricity supply. As such, Associate Deputy Minister Tupper will discuss Canada’s role in nuclear technology development and share his perspectives on the clean energy transition. The conversation will also cover:
- Canada’s Energy Transition Pathways
- Advanced nuclear technologies and small modular reactors
- Multilateral co-operation in a post-COVID-19 world
The event is free and open to the public, and will feature a session to answer questions submitted ahead of time. Please note that the number of participants is limited and registrations are on a first come, first served basis.
