ScottMadden to Release Energy Industry Update: Fukushima Aftermath

ScottMadden, Inc. - 10.24.2011

In its upcoming Energy Industry Update, ScottMadden, Inc., a leading general management consulting firm, will examine a number of issues, including how the nuclear industry is responding to the March 2011 release of radioactive materials at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear station in Japan.

In this upcoming issue themed “Outlook for Nuclear Post-Fukushima” ScottMadden will offer insight on implications for new nuclear facilities as well as relicensing existing units:

• The expected impact on proposed nuclear units of the NRC’s Fukushima Task Force recommendations to ensure protection, enhance mitigation, and strengthen emergency preparedness

• Other factors influencing nuclear investment decisions, such as the expected price of natural gas

• How state public policy activism has been affected or not by the events at Fukushima

“When the Fukushima incident first occurred, the world was rightfully concerned about the health and welfare of the citizens of Japan as well as the potential adverse impact on nuclear power worldwide," said Brad Kitchens, president and CEO of ScottMadden. “Now that we have some distance from the event and the industry is assimilating lessons learned, many leaders are taking a more measured view of the prospects for near-term expansion of nuclear power.”

For more than a decade, the ScottMadden Energy Industry Update has served as a catalyst for strategic discussion, debate, and decisions. Thousands of industry leaders rely on it for the most important trends and thought-provoking insights. Click to download the prior issue, the February - 2011 ScottMadden Energy Industry Update.
