Press Release
Nuclear Innovation Alliance
October 2021

Today the Nuclear Innovation Alliance (NIA) released a new report, “Due Diligence for Advanced Nuclear Technology Companies: A Guide for Potential Investors.” This report is an introductory guide for potential investors in companies developing advanced nuclear technologies for electric power generation, industrial or district heating, hydrogen production, or other applications. The guide describes advanced reactor characteristics and considerations that may be of particular interest for evaluating investments. NIA Executive Director Judi Greenwald provided the following statement on the relevance of this new NIA work to ongoing efforts to enable decarbonization of energy systems:

“Investor interest in advanced nuclear energy is growing because it has attributes that can help meet urgent energy and environmental needs, both here and abroad: it is carbon-free, emits no conventional pollution, and is highly reliable. Advanced reactor technology is promising, rapidly evolving, highly regulated, but also unfamiliar to many. The new guide is designed to provide potential investors with helpful context as they begin to navigate the advanced nuclear space.

“The guide will also help advanced nuclear innovators understand what questions to expect from savvy investors. We have published the guide as part of our ongoing effort to ensure that advanced nuclear energy plays a role in helping the United States and other countries reach their zero-carbon emission goals.”
