Washington D.C. – The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Polish Ministry of Climate, today announced a commercial nuclear energy trade mission to Poland. The mission will take place September 20-22, 2023.
This joint initiative brings together world-leading U.S. nuclear energy companies spanning the nuclear supply chain. Delegates will include reactor developers and suppliers of crucial components and services.
“Poland is committed to expanding its commercial nuclear energy program to provide its citizens with clean, reliable and affordable power. This trade mission is a testament to our shared goal of promoting the growth of nuclear energy to address the climate crisis while ensuring energy security and national security,” said Maria Korsnick, NEI’s president and chief executive officer. “We expect this initiative will strengthen our technological collaborations and spur economic growth in both countries.”
“The U.S. Department of Energy is committed to helping Poland reach its net-zero goals and strengthen its energy security through the deployment of advanced civil nuclear technologies,” Andrew Light, Assistant Secretary for International Affairs said. “The Department stands ready to work with U.S. agencies and departments in bolstering our commercial diplomatic efforts to achieve a civil nuclear energy renaissance across Central and Southeastern Europe that will build a clean energy economy and create thousands of well-paying jobs in the United States and Europe.”
“Cooperation on nuclear power and energy security is a key pillar of the U.S.-Polish bilateral relationship,” added U.S. Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski. “This trade mission brings us one step closer to delivering on our promise to serve as Poland’s trusted partner in their pursuit of clean, reliable, and safe nuclear power.”
