President’s Special Session:

Understanding Energy Markets: How They Work,

Why They’re Broken, and What ANS Members

Can Do to Ensure They’re Fixed

Monday, October 30, 4:30 – 6:40 pm

How nuclear power plants are impacted by energy marketplaces is a complex web. Nuclear professionals who are not directly involved with these markets often find it challenging to fully understand the intricacies of how market rules – which can vary from state to state – are impacting the outlook for nuclear energy in the U.S. This session will provide a clear explanation of how the energy markets work, how they affect nuclear plants, and actionable guidance for communicating effectively about them with the public and policymakers.
