Miguel Garcia Duvison, Operations Director at Red Eléctrica de España, gave a presentation entitled: The Contribution of Power Generation Technologies to the Safety of Supply in the Spanish System. Manuel Ibáñez Giner., Nuclear Energy Director of UNESA, then spoke about The Spanish Nuclear Power Stations: News and Perspectives.

SNE News

The SNE has maintained its role as spokesperson for nuclear sector professionals, using press releases published on its website to keep members and anyone else interested in the evolving post-Fukushima situation informed about what is going on there and about resulting international action. Some of its members have further maintained this informative role by explaining in a comprehensible way to the general public - via the media - the events as they were unfolding.

Nuclear España, the monthly magazine of SNE that has been published in Spanish and English since 1984, devoted its edition N° 317 to the winter conference entitled: Nuclear Power Plants in 2010: Experiences and Perspectives.

SNE will shortly hold its annual competition for the allocation of 5 scholarships to the value of € 3,000 to students who meet the requirements mentioned in the call for entrants, namely to enrollment themselves in a Master's and/or postgraduate degree course in nuclear science and technology. All the relevant information is posted on SNE’s website at

The SNE website also contains a glossary of nuclear terms in Spanish that is growing constantly. It is a useful reference tool for members of the nuclear sector.
