The Role of Advanced Nuclear Technologies for Hard-to-Abate Sectors

Organised by the NEA and hosted at the #Atoms4Climate pavilion of the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27), this event gathered speakers to discuss the progress with advanced nuclear technologies deployment and their role for supporting decarbonisation strategies in otherwise hard-to-abate sectors. This include the potential of small modular reactors for replacing coal power plants, industrial heat applications of nuclear energy and off-grid mining.
