As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

With the global nuclear energy market expected to triple by 2050, emerging markets for advanced nuclear reactors and SMRs face a complex set of decisions. Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, Third Way, and ClearPath for a private workshop to assess the geopolitical implications of countries in Southeast Asia acquiring advanced nuclear energy technologies. 

The series highlights regional perspectives and provides an opportunity to discuss how countries in Southeast Asia view the role of nuclear energy, choose nuclear power plant vendors, and build in-country capacity to bring new reactors online. 

Please join us on Tuesday, March 23 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM EDT for the workshop, “The geopolitical implications of advanced nuclear reactors in Southeast Asia,” by registering below. Upon registration, you will receive Zoom details to join the private workshop on March 23.
