- Role of Nuclear Energy in Reducing CO2 Emissions -

2022年4月19日 21:30(日本時間)

 原子力エネルギーは、二酸化炭素を排出しない数少ない出力制御可能なエネルギー源です。 これまで、原子力エネルギーが、いかに脱炭素社会に貢献しうるかは、各種特徴の観点から議論に上ってきました。 GIFにおいても、炉システムのもつ柔軟性(運転柔軟性、展開柔軟性、生産柔軟性等※)やESG投資資格の観点から、 レポートを発行するとともに、その柔軟性を発揮するための方法を探るべく原子力エネルギーの 非電力利用に関するタスクフォース(GIF NEaNH-TF)を立ち上げ、活動をしております。 このネットゼロ社会への貢献は、COP26など多くの機会で議論され、多くの原子力関係組織が、その可能性を追求しています。  そこで、今回のGIFウェビナーは、GIF、IAEA、NEAという3国際機関から、この分野の中心人物をご招待し、 パネルディスカッションを行うこととしました。各20分の講演ののち、モデレータの司会のもと30分のパネルディスカッションを行う予定です。 まだ答えの決まっていない課題に対する考え方やアプローチを、複数の立場のリーダーから聞くことのできる貴重な機会です。
