Nuclear Energy: Securing The Future

Register for this Event  

The Stimson Center hosts a panel discussion on opportunities for incentives such as insurance, finance and limited liability to reduce nuclear risk while providing a return on investment to operators.

As the Nuclear Security Summit series draws to a close, the prospects dim for development of binding nuclear security standards to assure future safe, secure industry expansion. With DOE/NNSA’s Anne Harrington as the keynote and some key stakeholders participating, this event will explore the role that voluntary consensus standards could play in the nuclear industry, with a focus on cyber security and other areas of overlap between safety and security. To what extent could reputational risk, liability protections, insurance and nuclear project financing be used to marshal scarce resources and motivate voluntary implementation of additional security measures based on standards?
