  • Dinner debate in Strasbourg

Chaired by Jerzy Buzek MEP, EEF President


Anne-Sophie Schmitt, Coordination and External Relations Lead, NUWARD, EDF
Hidde Baars, Director Government Affairs for the Netherlands & EU, Urenco
Zuzana Petrovičová, Head of Unit, Nuclear energy, nuclear waste and decommissioning, DG ENER, European Commission
Franc Bogovič, EEF Director, ITRE Rapporteur – INI Report on SMRs

The European Energy Forum is pleased to invite you to an energy debate with its Associate Members EDF and Urenco to explore the concept and applications of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), the fuel development and their potential and challenges as an enabler of the transition.

The discussion will adopt a value chain approach. Speakers will present the perspectives of the fuel producer and power generator, to provide participants with a complete overview.

They will examine the measures that could favour the emergence of an SMRs market and explain how SMRs can support the EU’s objectives of decarbonization, strategic autonomy and security of supply.

We look forward to this insightful exchange!
