European Nuclear Energy Forum
The European Nuclear Energy Forum (ENEF) is a European Union body that brings together the EU’s 27 EU Member State governments, European institutions including the European Parliament and the European Economic and Social Committee, the nuclear industry, electricity consumers and civil society groups, to discuss nuclear energy.
The EU's website says the ENEF is a “unique platform for a broad discussion, free of any taboos, on transparency issues as well as the opportunities and risks of nuclear energy”. It was set up in 2007, after a summit on climate change, and meets twice a year.
Three ENEF working groups have been established, on risks, transparency and opportunities. Two are run by senior nuclear industry figures.
Members of the Forum include personnel from the following companies and organisations:
- World Association of Nuclear Operators
- Hitachi Nuclear Energy
- GE Energy
