DOE-NE Investment in Advanced Nuclear Technology
In December 2017, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry released a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support development of advanced nuclear energy technology. The Department of Energy (DOE) is soliciting proposals for cost-shared projects to develop innovative, industry-driven reactor designs and accompanying technologies with high potential to advance nuclear power in the United States.

"Targeted early-stage investment in advanced nuclear technology will support a strong domestic industry now and into the future," said Secretary Perry. "This funding opportunity is an important step to ensure our nation continues to benefit from this clean, resilient source of electricity."
The FOA will be open for a five-year period accepting applications on a year-round basis, with a quarterly selection process. Additional funding will be available throughout as allocated by Congress.
Through this competition, DOE encourages U.S. companies to partner with other U.S. federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities to share expertise needed to successfully develop these innovative technologies.
