The World Association of Nuclear Operators generally keeps a low public profile, but its CEO Ingemar Engkvist joins us to explain why that low public profile is deliberate, and outlines how the organisation works and how its members support each other.  He also discusses the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war.

Watch out for Engkvist's very unusual story about how he first became involved in the nuclear field, and as he comes to the end of his three-year term he talks about the exciting prospects for nuclear energy in the decades ahead.

In the news round-up for November, the focus is on the role nuclear played at COP27. World Nuclear Association's Jonathan Cobb and Henry Preston report on the event and from some of the expert sessions staged at the #Atoms4Climate pavilion at the event in Egypt - the first time there has been such a platform at a COP.  Speakers featured included: 

  • Pat Dalzell from Bruce Power
  • Ontario's environment minister David Pacinni
  • Elina Teplinsky from Pillsbury Law
  • Kirsty Gogan from TerraPraxis
  • Edward Stones from Dow
  • Alice Cunha da Silva, nuclear engineer
  • Daniel Liu from Japan Atomic Industrial Forum
  • Tyson Culver, director of Juice: How Electricity Explains the World
