An additional one-time appropriation of $2.1 to $3.5 billion and authority to procure domestic low-enriched uranium (LEU) and high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) using a “revolving fund” would provide DOE the guaranteed funding and tools necessary to catalyze new domestic LEU and HALEU production and break our dependence on Russian nuclear fuels.


This fact sheet discusses why advanced nuclear energy is a key climate solution. It focuses on modeling results that show the role of advanced nuclear energy in reaching net-zero, advanced nuclear's value proposition compared to other power sources, and the role of flexible resources (like advanced nuclear energy) in a clean energy system.
