Nuclear Energy Securing the Future

On October 28, 2015 the Stimson Center and the Washington Foreign Law Society, cosponsored “Nuclear Energy: Securing the Future” a discussion on opportunities for incentives such as insurance, finance and limited liability to reduce nuclear risk while providing a return on investment to operators.  As the Nuclear Security Summit series draws to a close, the prospects dim for development of binding nuclear security standards to assure future safe, secure industry expansion.

With DOE/NNSA’s Anne Harrington as the keynote and some key stakeholders participating, this event explored the role that voluntary consensus standards could play in the nuclear industry, with a focus on cyber security and other areas of overlap between safety and security.
