Event overview

Following the State Government's announcement of a Royal Commission into nuclear energy, CEDA will host a discussion about what nuclear energy future could look like in South Australia, with a summary of the event discussion to be incorporated into CEDA's formal submission to the Royal Commission.

In launching the draft terms of reference of the Royal Commission, the Premier has clearly stated the intent of the inquiry:

"We need an informed and mature debate about the opportunities and risks of South Australia's involvement in the mining, enrichment, energy and storage phases for the peaceful use of nuclear energy"

Whatever the future involvement South Australia has in the nuclear energy cycle, it comes within the current context of:

  • South Australia is already part of the nuclear energy cycle already;
  • South Australia has one of the world's largest known deposits of uranium;
  • We are not currently doing enough worldwide to address the causes and effects of climate change;
  • Fresh leaks of highly radioactive water are still being detected; and
  • World energy prices have dropped dramatically in the past six months.

Speakers will provide an in-depth global understanding of the current nuclear energy issues, within economic, environmental, social and political frameworks.  This insight will be critical in understanding the real opportunities and challenges South Australia faces in reviewing our part in the global nuclear energy cycle.

Join CEDA and participate in a discussion on what our nuclear energy future could and should look like.
