“This Is An Environmentally Friendly Way To Leave The World A Better Place” Featuring Maria Korsnick, NEI

We are thrilled to share a Special Edition COBT featuring Maria Korsnick, President and CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI). As a brief introduction, Maria has 36 years of experience in the nuclear industry from operations to management positions and has been with NEI since 2015. In her extensive career, Maria has been responsible for five reactors at three different locations and now uses her technical and operational background to advocate for the industry with key legislative and regulatory advancements. We had much to discuss!

Maria's passion for nuclear energy is unmistakable and in our discussion we touch on the commercial nuclear industry, the America-Russia-China dynamic and importance of having long-term global relationships, the media's impact on the nuclear industry, the Civil Nuclear Credit Program, clean energy tax credits, applications for non-energy nuclear power use, re-purposing nuclear waste, and how putting nuclear energy together with alternate forms provides a compelling option for making the energy sector reliable and affordable. Nuclear's energy density relative to other energy sources is fascinating. We are excited to see how the NEI continues to advance the industry with governmental support.

The Veriten team had a brief lead-in to start the show: Mike Bradley shared a quick look at the uranium ETF (URA) to prepare us for our discussion. Colin Fenton noted the lack of nuclear power mentioned in the European Commission's REPowerEU Plan released last Wednesday and had a few tidbits on wheat prices and Russian Ruble gains. We are also excited to announce that Brett Rampal has joined the Veriten team as Director, Nuclear and Power Strategy and will be leading our nuclear efforts.

It was fantastic to visit with Maria. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did! Thanks to you all.
