The Future of Nuclear Power

February 7, 2023
La Jolla, CA
UC San Diego's Faculty Club, Atkinson Pavilion

Please join us on Feb. 7 at 3:45 p.m. for a discussion with Mohamed Al Hammadi, CEO of Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC), the developer and operator of one of the world’s largest new nuclear power plants, located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The plant is offering a massive supply of clean energy in the region and is a model for how foreign investment can help transform the nuclear power industry. The conversation will focus on how that model was developed, implications for the region, particularly in the run-up to the UAE-hosted COP28, the role of nuclear energy in decarbonization, and the relationship between all this and regional energy security.
