    President Obama recently called for expansion of nuclear energy generation in the United States while announcing the first in a series of loan guarantees -- an $8.7 billion guarantee for two new units at the Vogtle plant in Georgia. The President's Fiscal Year 2011 budget request proposes expanding the Energy Policy Act of 2005 loan guarantee program to $54 billion. There are eighteen applications received by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for 28 new nuclear reactors. Additionally, four new nuclear fuel enrichment facilities are either under construction or planned along with initiatives for at least two new major manufacturing facilities to provide nuclear plant components. This revival comes amidst a global nuclear renaissance with more than 50 plants under construction and up to 400 on the drawing boards -- boosted by electricity demand in emerging nations and global climate objectives. Senators Kerry (D-MA), Lieberman (I-CT) and Graham (R-SC) are planning to introduce a revamped bipartisan U.S. climate change legislative approach this Spring that embraces a robust nuclear energy platform.

    Webinar discussion topics include the status of "early movers", leading technology options, key players in the nuclear marketplace as well as critical hurdles to new nuclear generation including the impasse over the Yucca Mountain (Nevada) nuclear repository.
