NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.
Love social media? Are you a Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn user? Then join our Team!
The ANS Social Media Team started in October 2016 as part of the Society’s public outreach efforts. The purpose of the Team is to network and share pronuclear messaging via the ever-growing, and ever-changing, platform of social media. The members are made up of ANS national members. To become part of the Team we ask that you have at least one active social media account, such as Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
And it’s not a very time-consuming group to participate in. Simply agree to the following:
The Team is made up of many talented and creative people, like you. Aside from traditional social media, we have other platforms that our Teammates use as vehicles to have their collective voices heard. RadioNuclear.org is the podcast that ANS sponsors and is hosted by Teammate Doug Hardtmayer. We also offer livestreaming opportunities run by LASC, a subcommittee of Professional Development Coordination Committee. Bring your ideas to our conversations, or email Linda Zec, the Online Communications Specialist, with your ideas to grow the Team as well as options to expand our networking capabilities.
Interested? For more information about the ANS Social Media Team, contact Linda by phone 708-579-8240, email, or cell 708-522-6378.
