Nuclear Power Africa




The Nuclear Power Africa Conference features expert speakers who will address the myths and realities, latest technologies, regulatory and financing challenges and the economic spin offs created by a nuclear new build program. Nuclear stakeholders and prospective suppliers to gain first hand insights into prospects for new jobs, training programs, and the business opportunities created by the localisation of the supply chain of a nuclear new build.

This year we are focusing on how nuclear can fulfil Africa’s potential in driving development and the steps which must be taken to meet the nuclear demand. Access crucial information on alleviating safety concerns through fulfilling risk management and compliance targets.

Some of the topics to be discussed

  • Panel discussion: Reading between the headlines: What is South Africa’s nuclear positioning?
  • Case study: What is the potential impact of a new build plant for the communities of the Eastern Cape?
  • Roundtable discussions: Participants will explore the externalities of nuclear energy production. An intimate format to ask your hard questions and look in-depth at the challenges facing your role and the African market. Discussions will be facilitated by market leaders and industry experts.

Table topics:

- How can you achieve localisation benefits?
- How realistic are the financing proposals for nuclear fleets; is optimism overshadowing realism?
- What else can nuclear power offer Africa; the fruitful prospect of nuclear desalination?
- Tapping into human capital; positioning your company to gain from nuclear training facilities
- Learning to work to the strengths and weaknesses of the energy grid
- Grasping economic growth and avoiding a nuclear relaxed future
