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.
