Decommissioning Power Plants - Regulations, Projects, and People

With lower prices on natural gas power, and the rise of renewable energy, we’re seeing record numbers of coal-fired power plant are being shut down. Similarly, record numbers of nuclear power plants are also shutting down as plants enter the end of their life cycle. Considering how expensive it can be for a power plant to fully decommission, this two-day workshop is designed to educate mid-size and smaller power plant companies on new and alternative forms of plant decommissioning and remediation. It will also discuss potential new federal and state regulations, and the benefits of utilizing third party contractors as a more cost-effective DDD measure.
