Nuclear energy can bring many benefits to communities as they transition to a clean energy economy.  This session explored important questions around communities, employment and a just transition.  They included:

  • How can nuclear easily replace the coal jobs and infrastructure in communities to avoid economic hardship and meet climate goals? 
  • What will be the future of the energy labour force with increased hydrogen and nuclear deployment?
  • How nuclear can play a part in a just transition with decreasing carbon emissions, bringing long-term good paying jobs to a community, and providing reliable and affordable power?
  • How can nuclear energy offer employment opportunities for youth?
