Nuclear Innovation Alliance Executive Director Judi Greenwald issued the following statement on the release of topline spending figures for the U.S. Department of Energy in President Biden’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget request:
"We are encouraged by what we see in the President's budget request for FY 2022. Advanced nuclear technologies will need to be part of the overall solution to reaching mid-century climate goals. We need sufficient investments in research, development, and commercialization now to ensure that happens: this budget is a good first step in that direction."
