The Bay Area Association of Energy Engineers

& IEEE Power & Energy Society


“Nuclear Energy Update”

Dr. Jasmina Vujic

Professor & Chair, Nuclear Engineering Dept., UC Berkeley


This talk will discuss the technical challenges and opportunities requiring

a long-term strategy in building research capabilities and teaming among international and national laboratories, universities & industry to achieve global sustainable nuclear energy benefits.  At the beginning of the 21st century the world faces considerable energy & environmental challenges. Almost one-third of the world’s population has no access to electricity. Fossil fuels will continue to be a major source of energy in the future, unless more environmental and sustainable sources are available. Developed countries are concerned about energy security and energy independence, and nuclear energy will play a significant and increasing role in the world’s energy mix. However, several obstacles must be overcome, including safe disposal of spent fuel & proliferation prevention.
