Felix Meissner and Shawn Downey participated in the third Colloquium on North American Energy Policy: Opportunities and Challenges in Nuclear Energy at the Consulate General of Mexico in New York City on April 18, 2013.
This meeting was sponsored by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) of New York in collaboration with the Consulate General of Canada and the Consulate General Mexico. This colloquium included 35 participants from the US, Canadian, and Mexican governments as well as industry representatives and academia.
A lively discussion was held on how best to promote and support the adoption of commercial nuclear electricity production throughout North America. Nuclear power is of significant interest to the AJC Energy Committee as it is seen as critical to regional energy independence and security.
