ABSTRACT:  Nuclear power will play a crucial role in decarbonizing the energy system. This discussion will review the state of the existing fleet, which is important to reach near term carbon reduction commitments. As nations around the world aim towards a net-zero energy system by mid-century, emerging nuclear technologies and non-electric use of nuclear energy will be needed. These technologies and related policies under discussion will be examined.

BIO: Tina Taylor is the Deputy Chief Nuclear Officer and Senior Director, R&D at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). She is responsible for a diverse portfolio of research addressing the most technically challenging issues facing nuclear power. Her team is responsible for work in the areas of maintenance, engineering, equipment 
reliability, instrumentation and control, risk and safety management, chemistry, fuel, high and low-level waste, and decommissioning. Additionally, Taylor is leading EPRI’s efforts related to training and technology transfer. Taylor has worked in the electric power industry for more than 30 years and joined EPRI in 1997. At EPRI, she has worked in a breadth of areas including nuclear power, environment, sustainability, renewables and engineering 
services. Prior to joining EPRI, Taylor specialized in chemistry and corrosion in nuclear plants, working as a senior engineer at B&W Nuclear Technologies and before that as an engineer at Northeast 
Utilities. Taylor holds a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from Tufts University.

If interested, please attend the presentation on Monday, November 29th at 12:00pm EST.
