In conjunction with the release of the NIA's newest publication, Fission Vision, the Nuclear Innovation Alliance hosted a launch event to debut Fission Vision at 1pm ET, April 13, 2022. The online webinar was moderated by RENEWPR President Ben Finzel and featured:
- NIA Executive Director Judi Greenwald and four special guests:
- Third Way Senior Vice President for the Climate and Energy Program Josh Freed;
- Good Energy Collective Co-Founder and Executive Director Jessica Lovering;
- ClearPath Managing Director - Public Policy Nicholas McMurray; and
- GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Global Government Affairs Leader Adam DeMella.
Fission Vision calls for a focused national effort to develop, demonstrate and deploy the advanced nuclear technologies necessary to meet mid-century climate goals, support domestic energy production, create new jobs and tax revenue, and protect the nation's global competitiveness.
This new publication describes the challenges and opportunities associated with development of a domestic commercial HALEU market and identifies potential policy options that can be used to catalyze market development. It presents the changing near-term, mid-term, and long- term supply and demand conditions that must be included when developing federal programs to accelerate commercial market development.
This new publication provides an introduction to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) frameworks and how they may affect advanced nuclear energy technologies and projects. It includes potential actions the nuclear industry and financial community should consider to promote consistent analytical treatment of nuclear energy within ESG frameworks and efficient access to capital for nuclear investments.
The following testimony was provided by NIA Executive Director Judi Greenwald and NIA Project Manager Patrick White at the Minnesota Senate Committee on Energy and Utilities Finance and Policy hearing on March 24, 2022.
