Welcome H.E. Rafael Mariano Grossi, Director General, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

We are excited to share that the upcoming forum will include a pre-recorded opening message from His Excellency Rafael Mariano Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). His expertise and viewpoints will offer essential context and direction for our conversations at this year’s forum.

Over 70% of global electricity demand growth will be in Asia…. Plus the emissions, if we stick with coal.

Asia’s remarkable GDP growth rates exceeding 6%, rapid urbanization, industrialization, and population expansion have fueled a surge in energy imports and reignited interest in nuclear power.

To ensure secure, affordable electricity through nuclear technology, it is essential for the region’s governments to take decisive actions. Let us outline the crucial steps:

Address safety concerns by improving safety standards and regulations for nuclear power plants. Enhance emergency preparedness and response capabilities to ensure utmost safety for all.

Reduce capital costs associated with nuclear projects. By minimizing financing risks and increasing operational efficiency, we can extend the lifespan of existing reactors, benefiting those who already have them.

Strengthen national and regional frameworks and institutions for nuclear security and non-proliferation safeguards to meet international standards. This will ensure a secure and stable nuclear landscape in the region.

Garner public support for nuclear energy by raising awareness of its benefits and risks. Engage stakeholders and local communities in decision-making processes to build trust and inclusiveness.

After Australia’s Black Summer bushfires, the firefighters who responded were so traumatized by the screams of koalas being burned alive that 1 in 20 needed urgent mental health intervention.

Failure to secure reliable and affordable electricity now will have grave consequences for the region’s sustainable development goals:

‣ Impeded economic and social opportunities, hindering Asia’s ability to attract and retain investments, businesses, and talents. Key sectors like manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, and digital services will suffer.

‣ Diminished living standards and well-being, particularly for the less privileged. Gaps in access to essential services such as healthcare, education, water supply, sanitation, lighting, cooling, and communication will severely impact citizens’ lives.

‣ Adversely impacted environment and weakened climate resilience. Overreliance on fossil fuels and traditional biomass will result in increased emissions, pollution, and health issues. Furthermore, countries will be ill-equipped to cope with the repercussions of climate change.

Nuclear technology is a proven resource that is already being safely harnessed within the region. We can use it to ensure available and affordable energy as we work towards a post-pandemic recovery.

Mark your calendars for Nuclear Power Forum Asia 2023, to be held on September 14-15, 2023, in Manila, Philippines.

This event serves as a unique platform for you to engage with Asia’s nuclear asset operators and owners, national nuclear regulatory bodies, funding providers and financiers, public awareness advocates, as well as national and regional institutions for nuclear security and safeguards. In addition, emergency preparedness and response agencies, local stakeholders, community representatives, and nuclear power plant developers eager to collaborate with you will be present. It is an opportunity to establish vital partnerships in your pursuit of building nuclear power facilities.

By joining us at Nuclear Power Forum Asia 2023, you will unlock a multitude of opportunities:

‣ Attain reliable and affordable electricity access.

‣ Foster economic and social development.

‣ Bolster energy security and diversity.

‣ Mitigate environmental impacts arising from fossil fuel use.

‣ Achieve development goals.

‣ Facilitate universal access to electricity and clean cooking.

‣ Increase the share of renewable energy in the energy mix.

‣ Reduce carbon intensity and emissions.

‣ Enhance energy efficiency and productivity.

‣ Strengthen regional cooperation and integration.

We eagerly anticipate your presence in Manila, Philippines.

Nuclear Power Forum Asia is the only ASEAN-centered pan-Asian executive conference that brings together the region’s investors, government regulators, technical experts, and executive decision-makers to build a unified roadmap for us to maintain our energy security and personal integrity in the energy transition.

Are You Joining the Site Tour?

The Site Tour is CONFIRMED on Friday, September 15, 2023. We will be visiting the Philippine Research Reactor 1 (PRR-1).

For 34 years, the PRR-1 research reactor in the Philippines was silent and dark. It was shut down in 1988 due to safety and funding issues, and its fate was uncertain.

But a dedicated team of scientists and engineers never gave up on their dream of reviving it.

They worked hard to secure the necessary permits, resources, and support from the government and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). They also upgraded the reactor’s facilities, equipment, and procedures to meet the modern standards.

Finally, on June 20, 2022, they achieved their goal. They loaded the PRR-1 SATER with 44 nuclear rods and witnessed the light of science once again. The reactor will now serve as a source of education, research, and innovation for the country and the region.

The team celebrated their success and thanked everyone who helped them. They proved that nothing is impossible with passion, perseverance, and collaboration.

Please advise which ones among your group will join the Site Tour before 5:00 PM (GMT+8) on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, to secure clearances and ensure transportation and personal protective equipment (PPE) availability.
