New York, N.Y., Feb. 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NANO Nuclear Energy Inc. (“NANO Nuclear”), an emerging microreactor and advanced nuclear technology company led by a world-class nuclear engineering team developing proprietary, portable, and clean energy solutions, is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring the upcoming Innovation Zero 2024 conference in London on April 30 and May 1, 2024.

Additionally, NANO Nuclear’s Chief Executive Officer James Walker will take part in a panel discussion on April 30, 2024 at 3:20 GMT titled, “The Role of Nuclear Energy in the Transition.” Also, NANO Nuclear’s Lead of Nuclear Fuel Cycle, Radiation and Materials, Prof. Ian Farnan and Lead of Nuclear Reactor Engineering Prof. Eugene Shwageraus, two distinguished Cambridge University professors, will be in attendance.

Chaired by the Rt. Hon Dr Liam Fox MP and partnered with the U.K. Government, Innovation Zero is one of the largest sustainability and net-zero expositions in the U.K.

“Events like Innovation Zero are crucial for enhancing awareness and educating the public regarding the often-underappreciated potential of nuclear energy,” said Jay Jiang Yu, Founder and Executive Chairman of NANO Nuclear. “We are immensely pleased to sponsor and participate in this exciting event.”

“Our sponsorship of the upcoming Innovation Zero 2024 conference marks a significant milestone for NANO Nuclear,” said James Walker, Chief Executive Officer of NANO Nuclear Energy. “The United Kingdom, with its extensive history in nuclear energy, presents an ideal backdrop for advancing our commitment to the future of this vital energy sector. I’m also looking forward to joining the panel discussion and sharing insights on how advanced nuclear energy technologies like ours can benefit society, and I think Innovation Zero is the perfect event for such discussions.”

The UK government has methodically begun implementing a broad strategy to strengthen energy security and reduce reliance on fossil fuels in an effort to meet net-zero deadlines. In 2021, the government announced up to £210 million for the Rolls-Royce small nuclear reactor (SMR) program to develop one of the world’s first SMRs. Subsequently in 2022, the UK government earmarked £1.7 billion for developing a large-scale nuclear project and, in 2023, announced a £120 million Future Nuclear Enabling Fund to support further nuclear projects. The UK government has also announced initiatives such as Great British Nuclear, a sponsored competition to find the company most able to deliver cutting-edge technology by mid-2030s. NANO Nuclear is presently developing its own SMR designs.
