In 2017, NIA published a report about using the Major Portions option to establish regulatory finality of part of a reactor for a Standard Design Approval. This Addendum provides lessons learned from NIA's observation of a pre-application interaction by Terrestrial Energy USA that drew upon NIA's original report.
This primer provides a short summary of the primary motivations behind pursuing advanced nuclear energy, including carbon emissions reductions, technological innovations, economic benefits, and global competitiveness.
The Nuclear Innovation Alliance (NIA) and Partnership for Global Security (PGS) held a webinar event to release their new joint strategy "U.S. Advanced Nuclear Energy Strategy: for Domestic Prosperity Climate Protection, National Security, and Global Leadership." Based on stakeholder engagement, the strategy provides a roadmap for the United States to become a global leader in advanced nuclear energy. The webinar was moderated by Dean Scott of Bloomberg and hosted by NIA's Executive Director Judi Greenwald and PGS' President Ken Luongo. Judi and Ken were joined by Niko McMurray of ClearPath, Jessica Lovering of Good Energy Collective, and Jennifer Gordon of Atlantic Council. A copy of the report can be found here: Report
The Nuclear Innovation Alliance and Partnership for Global Security have a developed a joint strategy for U.S. leadership on commercialization of advanced reactors. A whole-of-society approach with collaboration between government, industry, civil society, and other nations can bring advanced reactors to market to reduce global emissions, provide domestic jobs, and support national security.
Nuclear Innovation Alliance and Partnership for Global Security published a joint strategy to establish American leadership in advanced nuclear energy. This Executive Summary provides a high-level overview of the strategy.
