Promising nuclear technologies receive $22.1 million from DOE

Nuclear Newswire reports on different nuclear technologies that recently received $22.1 million from the Department of Energy.

The C3 Take
  • The funding comes from the Office of Nuclear Energy’s industry funding opportunity announcement, which has invested more than $230 million since 2018 into promising nuclear technologies.
  • Awardees of the funding include X-energy, which will complete a preliminary design of its microreactor to bring it closer to commercial development, and the Electric Power Research Institute, who will demonstrate advanced manufacturing of SMR components to support the U.S. supply chain.
  • Public-private partnerships like this are driving innovation and progress.

“The Department of Energy yesterday announced the awarding of $22.1 million to 10 industry-led nuclear projects, including two aimed at expanding clean hydrogen production and one at advancing a microreactor design. Other projects selected for funding are focused on addressing nuclear regulatory hurdles, improving existing reactor operation, and facilitating new advanced reactor developments.”
