“The issue of energy transition is now at the heart of political, economic and societal debates to move towards carbon neutrality in 2050”, said Sylvie Bermann, president of the World Nuclear Exhibition. The fourth edition of the World Nuclear Exhibition (WNE) starting on 30 November in Paris Nord Villepinte, Paris, will focus on the role of the nuclear industry as a key partner in the global energy transition, contributing to “a low-carbon society in a responsible future”, the event organisers said.

WNE 2021, organised by the French nuclear industry group Gifen, will be held between 30 November and 2 December and is expected to attract 18,000 participants from 65 countries. Among those more than 600 will be exhibitors – with about a third from overseas.

“The issue of energy transition is now at the heart of political, economic and societal debates to move towards carbon neutrality in 2050”, Sylvie Bermann, WNE’s president, told NucNet.

“By choosing ‘The nuclear industry, a key player for a low-carbon society and a responsible future’ as the theme for this year’s event, we wanted to highlight the major role that the nuclear industry is playing and must continue to play in the fight against climate change,” she said.
