Energy Department Invests Nearly $50 Million at National Laboratories and Universities to Advance Nuclear Technology
June 27, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $49.3 million in nuclear energy research, facility access, crosscutting technology development, and infrastructure awards for 58 advanced nuclear technology projects in 25 states. The awards fall under DOE's nuclear energy programs called the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP), the Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) program, and crosscutting research projects.

"DOE is looking to the future, and that's why we are investing in advanced nuclear technologies. Nuclear energy is a critical part of our all-of-the-above energy strategy, and early-stage research can help ensure it will continue to be a clean, reliable, and resilient source of electricity for a long time to come," said Ed McGinnis, DOE's Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy.
