More than 500 nuclear experts gathered in Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London on September 7-9, 2005 to participate in the 30th Annual Symposium “Challenges of the Nuclear Renaissance – The Future is Now”.
In the course of 30 years, the Annual WNA Symposium has become a premier international event for the nuclear power facilities.
The following subjects were discussed at the Symposium’s sectional sessions:
– Prospects for nuclear power;
– WNA Market Report. The Global Nuclear Fuel Market: Nuclear Fuel Supply and Demand 2005-2030;
– Attracting investment for the growth of nuclear power;
– Challenges of the nuclear renaissance: the key role of nuclear safety;
– Securing future energy supply;
– Uranium supply prospects;
– Developments in fuel cycle services;
WNA is the global association including the companies involved in nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear power generation. Founded in 2001 and built upon the 25-year legacy of the Uranium Institute, the WNA aims to bring within its membership – and to support – the full array of enterprises constituting the world nuclear industry.
WNA members are responsible for some 90% of the world’s nuclear- generated electricity outside the USA (about two-thirds of nuclear generation worldwide), and well over 90% of world activity in the mining, conversion, enrichment and fabrication of nuclear fuel.
