The Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) commits the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to carbon neutrality by no later than 2050. To achieve this, we must examine economical and low-carbon sources for energy generation and purchasing. The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) is hosting a forum to discuss nuclear power — and new technologies like micronuclear reactors.

The discussion will include:

  • Facilities & Services Executive Director Mohamed Attalla on iCAP goals and campus energy needs
  • Nuclear engineering faculty who are exploring microreactor technology that could help power campus and provide cutting-edge research and educational opportunities
  • Student and faculty sustainability leaders discussing safety and waste disposal
  • And you! The forum will conclude with a Q&A session for our panelists to address questions and concerns.

Sign up by noon Wednesday, Sept. 9, at go.illinois.edu/nuclearconversation. iSEE will send you a Zoom invitation on the morning of Sept. 10!
