This letter was written in support of the Alaska Legislature decision to introduce SB 177, which would encourage communities across Alaska to explore opportunities with microreactors.
NIA's public comment to DOE's request for information on developing supply chains for the energy sector industrial base, including the advanced nuclear energy supply chain. (Comment ID: DOE-HQ-2021-0020-0067)
Unnecessarily long licensing reviews raise significant barriers to investment, reduce customer interest in advanced reactors, and threaten successful long-term deployment of advanced nuclear reactors. In this report, the NIA explores how the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Industry can make advanced reactor licensing both more effective and more efficient.
The Nuclear Innovation Alliance (NIA) hosted a webinar for the release of their newest report, "Promoting Efficient NRC Advanced Reactor Licensing Reviews to Enable Rapid Decarbonization". The report explores how the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and industry can reduce how long it takes to license a reactor to enable climate mitigation with advanced reactors. The webinar featured NIA Project Manager Alex Gilbert, Global Energy Practice Leader at Hogan Lovells Amy Roma, and was moderated by Former NRC Chairman, Stephen Burns.
