On the evening of Wednesday, 4 October 2023, an audience of approximately fifty people at the State Gallery of NSW enjoyed a highly topical and thought-provoking presentation titled "Australia’s nuclear future: a new discourse for the 2040s". In this presentation and discussion, international nuclear law specialist, Helen Cook, Principal of GNE Advisory, and Dr Adi Paterson FRSN FTSE, former CEO of ANSTO, considered Australia's energy future, arguing for the need for Australia to be technology-neutral in its consideration of future energy options. The talk canvassed the current state of the civilian nuclear industry around the world, noting that around 50 countries are currently considering or actively implementing new nuclear power programs in recognition of the role that nuclear energy can play as a proven, clean, dispatchable, and economical technology to improve energy supply security and mitigate climate change. The recording of this interesting and highly significant presentation is now available on our YouTube channel.
