The Breakthrough Institute
From innovations in advanced fission to breakthroughs in fusion, these are exciting times for nuclear technology. But the difficult part – engineering a significant commercial scale-up of advanced nuclear technology by the end of the decade -- still lies ahead. Can the advanced nuclear sector overcome the basket of technical, regulatory, financial challenges in time to make a meaningful contribution to climate change before it is too late? Will fission and fusion energy systems be teammates or competitors in the energy landscape of tomorrow?
Join a panel of leading industry experts as they explore these and other questions about the fundamental future of nuclear technologies.
