APNE 2024
  StratComs Events in collaboration with Centre for Strategic Energy & Resources is pleased to bring you its 8th Asia Pacific Nuclear Energy  (APNE 24)a ground breaking summit focused on developing nuclear energy in the Asia Pacific region particularly the ASEAN countries who are currently looking at nuclear energy as a viable addition to their countries energy mix in light of growing energy demands. We are delighted to have Korea Nuclear Association endorse the 2 day summit.

ASEAN countries have no operational nuclear reactors currently but all of that could change very quickly – Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines are all looking to not only relaunch their civil nuclear projects but to look at new technologies like SMRs, ARs, thorium and floating nuclear power barges to meet their ever growing energy needs and reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. Current energy policy choices in Asia will have huge implications for its future energy mix and will be critical to meeting global environmental targets.  Countries in Southeast Asia cooperating internationally with nuclear energy experienced countries including South Korea, Japan, US and the UK. We are currently in the midst of an energy crisis and fossil fuels still make up 83% of Southeast Asia’s energy mix with energy demand expected to increase exponentially exposing these countries to increasing economic, energy security and geopolitical risks – balancing energy security, energy equity and energy sustainability.

“Nuclear energy will account for 34.5% of South Korea’s electricity generation by 2035, compared with 27.4% in 2021, according to the latest plan finalised by the country’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE)” 12 Jan 2023, WNN

In July 2023, the government finalised its 10th Basic Plan for Energy Supply and Demand and laid out its new energy policy which plans to keep nuclear energy’s share of the energy mix at a minimum of 30% by 2030.  The plan included a call to resume the construction of units 3 and 4 at the Shin Hanul nuclear power plant to resume along with strengthening exports of new energy industries and setting the ambitious goal of exporting 10 nuclear power plants by 2030 as well as the development of a Korean small modular reactor design.

With the clock ticking, what measures should be prioritised to achieve netzero by 2050?  Discussions at the recent COP28 have further emphasised the global agenda to fast track energy transition increasing energy efficiency and looking at all options to increase capacity and ensuring energy security.

At Radiant Energy Group we understand that the clean-energy industry will need new, empirically-driven communication strategies with which to engage skeptical stakeholders on the issues of cost, reliability and environmental impact.

Governments and investors will need a framework for a new type of climate agreement, which should lock in carbon-free technology while securing growth and equity for the Global South. And policymakers will need a model for developing reliable electricity, which must deal with a volatile climate and intermittent renewables without sacrificing social and economic goals.

A better world is possible!
