A proposal by La Crosse-based Dairyland Power Cooperative to build a “next-generation” nuclear power plant reflects a global renewal of interest in atomic energy to fight climate change and cut reliance on unstable oil and gas sources while meeting core electricity demands. Learn about the Dairyland plan and the larger debate Tuesday, May 24, at the Tech Council Innovation Network luncheon in Madison.

Panelists include Brent Ridge, president and chief executive officer of Dairyland Power Cooperative; Jeffrey Keebler, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Madison Gas & Electric; and Paul Wilson, Grainger Professor of Nuclear Engineering and chair of the UW-Madison Department of Engineering Physics.

The luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Hotel on Madison’s John Nolen Drive. Registration and networking begin at 11:30 a.m., lunch at noon and the presentation at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for students and returning veterans, $25 for individual members, $35 for non-members and included for Tech Council corporate members.
