On February 9, 2017, Amy Roma, a partner in the firm’s nuclear practice, delivered a keynote address at the 13th annual Platts Nuclear Energy Conference, in Washington, D.C.

Her address highlighted a number of promising developments for the nuclear industry, from the debut of state incentive programs that reward nuclear energy for its zero-emissions attributes, to the growth of the advanced reactor community.  Not only have we seen advancements in the United States regarding government support and licensing of advanced reactors, but as identified in her comments, five advanced reactor designs have been submitted to the Canadian nuclear regulator for initial design approval.  Her address also discussed updates regarding spent fuel storage and took notice of international growth in the nuclear industry.
