POLICY SESSION

Moderator Remarks: Thomas Lyon, Associate Director for Social Science and Policy, University of Michigan Energy Institute, Professor, Ross School of Business and School of Natural Resources and the Environment

The policy session, which closes the symposium, will explore how changes in public policy around nuclear power might resolve some of the challenges facing the industry and position it for socially acceptable future expansion.  Participants will detail considerations for a practical regulatory framework for bringing new reactors online in a timely manner; allowing the economics of nuclear plant operation to reflect its full costs and benefits, including climate impacts; and identify politically and socially viable solutions for nuclear waste storage.
