The International Framework for Nuclear Energy Cooperation (IFNEC) held a finance workshop on May 9-10, 2012, at the Lancaster House in London, United Kingdom. Over 120 representatives from 25 countries participated in interactive discussions related to the financing of nuclear projects in both expanding and emerging nuclear programs. These included IFNEC Steering Group representatives along with leaders in the financial, business and technical communities. The Workshop achieved its goal of bringing together experts representing a broad spectrum of stakeholders involved in financing nuclear energy projects to gain a better understanding of each other’s roles and approaches to nuclear energy financing. Through the expert-led scenario discussions about hypothetical projects in expanding and emerging nuclear programs and small breakout discussions with Workshop participants, attendees discussed the challenges and opportunities stakeholders interested in nuclear finance currently face.
The Workshop concluded with a broad range of outcomes and recommendations to be considered by the IFNEC Steering Group in July 2012. These include a list of potential actions that could be taken by IFNEC countries, individually and/or collectively, to address the identified barriers and opportunities associated with financing.
