India has a largely indigenous and well established nuclear power programme with around 5780 MW installed capacity currently under operation.  Nuclear power programme of India expects to have 25% of electricity from nuclear energy by 2050, as the country seeks carbon free sources of energy to balance its reliance on coal.

The country’s expertise in nuclear energy includes uranium mining, fuel fabrication, reactor design, construction, civil work, operation to reprocessing fuel and disposal. Sustainable development of India’s nuclear energy programme requires completing the nuclear fuel cycle with Thorium utilization.  While attaining its goal, the Department of Atomic Energy has acquired expertise in high tech areas and developed competent supplier base for the nuclear industry.  
In order to discuss the above and the related issues, ASSOCHAM is organizing the Conference on “Nuclear Power in India” on 20th September 2016 at Hotel Le- Meridien, New Delhi.  The theme for the Conference is “Indigenization & Viability”  


The objective of the Conference is to provide a common platform to industry players, policy makers and experts to interact towards evolving implementable solutions for the development of indigenous expertise and exploring existing potential in the Indian nuclear industry.
