Duke Energy Hosts International Nuclear Conference in Charlotte

For the first time in its history, the International Youth Nuclear Congress is being held in the United States.  Charlotte was selected, among other reasons, because according to the IYNC website, “the Carolinas region is the center of the nuclear industry in the United States.”

With seven active nuclear power plants in the region, the Carolinas do offer the opportunity for the Youth Congress’ number one goal – education.  The main reason for the organization is to make sure that the knowledge of today’s nuclear scientists is passed down to the next generation.

The conference, which was held August 5-11, was hosted  by Duke Energy and about 35 other sponsor energy companies.  The IYNC brought about 550 people to Charlotte.
