Forward In Energy Forum

The Wisconsin Energy Institute's (WEI) Forward in Energy Forum brings together experts from across UW–Madison to address the many dimensions of our global transition to clean energy systems. Join us on September 26 at 4:30 pm for our next forum. Despite recent economic challenges for nuclear energy, there is continued enthusiasm for advanced nuclear reactor technologies, particularly small modular reactors. Join a collection of UW–Madison for a discussion about these emerging technologies and the socio-economic environment in which they could integrate into a changing energy system.
