New nuclear for a cleaner tomorrow

Geoff Smith, Operations Director - Nuclear, will be taking part in a panel session at this one-day conference hosted by the Energy Industries Council.

The Energy Industries Council (EIC), in partnership with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), is hosting this one-day event to update the industry on the latest developments, bring together key new nuclear developers, the supply chain and keynote speakers from both inside and outside the nuclear sector.

Geoff Smith, Operations Director - Nuclear, will be taking part in a panel session at 11:00 which focuses on "Cross sector skills", the need to form a diverse energy mix and what are transferable and required skills from existing sectors to support the ever-growing nuclear market.

Nuclear power is widely considered to be the safest and most efficient energy source for generating electricity. At present there are about fifty-five power reactors being constructed in 15 countries, notably China, India, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Closer to home Nuclear has been pinned as the most affordable large scale, low-carbon energy source currently available in the UK. 

This full day event will cover a range of other topics about the nuclear sector:

  • Energy Security
  • Financing Nuclear
  • Policy and Regulations nationally and internationally
  • The rising need for the supply chain

Our Speaker

  • Geoff Smith

    Operations Director - Nuclear

    Geoff Smith joined Sir Robert McAlpine in February 2022 to lead our nuclear construction capability. His focus is on creating a team of experts who can work collaboratively to deliver predictable project outcomes for UK clients in the nuclear industry.

    Geoff is keen to share his thoughts on what skills are needed, what skills are transferable and the mindset necessary, from both employers and employees, if the nuclear industry is to attract out-of-sector talent.
