WUI and MUI Co-Host Nuclear Roundtable

WUI and the Minnesota Utility Investors are co-hosting the Future of Nuclear Energy Roundtable to discuss the benefits and potential of nuclear power.  The event will be held on Monday October 26th at the Best Western Hudson House Inn, located in Hudson, WI and will last from 6:00pm-8:30pm.

The event will feature a keynote speech by UW-Madison professor Dr. Michael Corradini.  Professor Corradini is a mechanical and nuclear engineer with research interests centered primarily in thermal hydraulics and multiphase flow. He especially emphasizes the areas of reactor operation, reactor safety, reprocessing, and recycle and risk assessment. He is chair of the Energy Institute faculty governance committee and the director of the college’s Wisconsin Institute of Nuclear Systems.

We will also have a panel discussion which will include Wisconsin Representative Jim Soletski, Chair of the Assembly Energy and Utilities Committee, Michael McGarey of the Nuclear Energy Institute, and Terry Pickens, the director of Nuclear Energy Policy at Xcel Energy.

“Nuclear power is a safe, reliable and emissions free energy source that can meet
growing demand while protecting the environment,” said Rep. Huebsch. “The
renewable sources available today can’t replace the baseload electricity produced
by natural gas and coal.”
“Unless nuclear power is at the heart of any plan to lower carbon emissions, little
progress will be made toward reducing our reliance on fossil fuel,” added Rep.
Montgomery. “Wisconsin has to catch up with the rest of the country and the
rest of the world where nuclear is recognized as a safe way to expand electric
generation capacity and reduce pollution without crippling the economy.”
