Upcoming Important Events

This page is a list of upcoming events that focus on energy, climate change, energy security, and energy infrastructure. By creating this list, PGS aims to not only provide a one-stop source of information for upcoming events but to also highlight the events that either support the advancement of nuclear energy or could benefit greatly from having more pro-nuclear speakers included in its agenda. Nuclear energy can play a valuable role in mitigating climate change, improving energy security, and developing energy infrastructure. Therefore, it is needed for nuclear energy to have a strong or stronger role in all upcoming energy, climate change, energy security, or energy infrastructure focused events.

  • Energy Disruptors Unite: 2019

    September 17, 2019 - September 18, 2019  
    1801 Big Four Trail SE, Calgary, AB T2G 2W1, Canada

    Sponsors: Energy Disrupters, ATB Finacial, Shell Canada, and ENMAX

    For two full days, the Oil and Gas industry will join forces with the influencers at the forefront of energy transformation in the name of improving the world's energy.

    Together we will cross-industry and policy barriers, break restraints on thought and harness the powerful potential of human ingenuity.

    Most events start a conversation. #EDU2019 is a high-impact event designed to ignite action.

  • International Conference on Climate Change and the Role of Nuclear Power

    October 7, 2019 - October 11, 2019  
    Location: Vienna, VA 22180, USA

    Sponsors: International Atomic Energy Agency

    Climate change is one of the most important issues the world is facing today. Nuclear power can make a significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, while at the same time fulfilling the increasing energy demands of a growing world population and supporting global sustainable development. Nuclear power has considerable potential to meet the climate change challenge by providing electricity, district heating and high-temperature heat for industrial processes, generated with almost zero greenhouse gas emissions.

    The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of information on the role of nuclear power, and on the opportunities and challenges of safe, secure and safeguarded nuclear technology development in supporting the low carbon energy transformation needed to achieve the climate change goals.

    The conference themes include a description of the mitigation challenge, implications for the power sector, environmental perspectives, and potential roles of existing, evolutionary and innovative nuclear power systems, including the integration of nuclear/renewable energy systems.
