Nuclear for better life
Rosatom State Corporation
I am happy to welcome all of you to the 11th ATOMEXPO Forum; this is our second meeting at a new site – in Sochi. The forum is getting bigger with each passing year: it has transformed from a Russian nuclear industry event attended by foreign partners into an international industry discussion event for which Rosatom provides a platform.
The motto for the ATOMEXPO 2019 is “Nuclear for better life”. The global agenda for the use of atomic technology is expanding rapidly. In addition to being an eco-friendly and reliable source of energy that significantly contributes to combating climate change, the peaceful atom also facilitates the development of science, education, medicine, and agriculture.More

Some three years after the Paris agreement, the path towards a low-carbon energy future remains unclear. Meeting the goals that many countries have set for themselves will mean substantially reducing the carbon intensity of the electric power sector by as much as a factor of ten. At the same time, the increasing electrification of industry, transport and buildings will only further reinforce the central role of electricity generation. It will be crucial that the increasing amounts of electricity being used come from clean-energy sources.
We have at our disposal technically mature, low-carbon alternatives − including solar and wind technology, hydroelectricity and nuclear power − to help countries reach their environmental and energy security goals.More
