Rick Jennings, Assistant Deputy Minister, Ministry of Energy, Ontario, will speak about Ontario’s recently released Long Term Energy Plan (LTEP) and the role of nuclear energy as part of that plan at this year’s first Future of Nuclear Seminar on January 21. The LTEP report entitled Achieving Balance addresses the growing role of renewables in the energy mix, the ongoing need for safe, reliable base load energy and the export business development potential for the nuclear industry. This session is targeted at senior executives and stakeholders that would like an opportunity to engage in a private dialogue regarding important nuclear energy issues in an objective, collaborative learning environment.
