Centre for New Energy Technology in Oskarshamn (CNETO), Municipality of Oskarshamn, KTH, Uniper and OKG.
Organized in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency
Forum conference center in Oskarshamn and a selection of sites for conference visits and excursions.
CET2022 is a meeting place for energy providers, regulating bodies and policy makers, utilities, producers and prospective buyers of SMR and related technologies, and the interested public.
CET2022 will include an overview of new SMR technology by invited producers as EDF-NUWARD, GE-Hitachi, CNNC, Nuscale, RollsRoyce, CEA, Sealer, and others.
Consumer aspects and opportunities of CET2022 will include Fermi Estonia, Pelplin Poland, OKG Sweden and other relevant organisations at national and regional level.
CET2022 will include demonstrations of local energy system opportunities in non-metropolitan Sweden with focus on the Kalmar region and Oskarshamn.
CET2022 will showcase new energy technologies.
Converging technologies describes the development of different technologies into a single new technology. The origin was framed early on e.g to describe the relation between medicin and engineering, resulting in new technologies like biomedical engineering.
Today the term is frequently used within the media landscape, where the present smart mobile telephones combine a set of different technologies.
“Technological convergence, is the tendency for technologies that were originally unrelated to become more closely integrated and even unified as they develop and advance.”
Within the field of energy, we see similar trends that CET2022 is addressing, where different technologies like energy storage, hydrogen production, district heating, smart grid, nuclear, hydro, wind and solar power are integrated to form a new smart energy system. The advance of small nuclear reactors (SMR) is central in speeding up the process of converging energy technologies.
