Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear

The mission of the Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) is to advance nuclear power as a resource capable of meeting the nation's energy, environmental and national security needs by resolving technical, cost, safety, proliferation resistance, and security barriers through research, development and demonstration [RD&D]...



​ATR Complex named nuclear historic landmark

The American Nuclear Society (ANS) dedicated Idaho National Laboratory's Advanced Test Reactor Complex as an ANS Nuclear Historic Landmark at an award ceremony today.

The complex housed the original Materials Testing Reactor, built in 1952, the Engineering Test Reactor, built in 1957, and the Advanced Test Reactor, which began operation in 1967, an American Nuclear Society news release said.


LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Wednesday vowed to advocate for nuclear power as the nation looks for ways to fuel its economy and limit the effects of electricity generation on the environment.

Perry made the comments during a visit to Los Alamos National Laboratory in northern New Mexico, where nuclear research has been among the main focuses since the lab's founding years during World War II. Los Alamos played a key role in the top-secret Manhattan Project to develop the first atomic bomb.


​Idaho Falls Post-Register


When the U.S. Department of Energy granted a site use permit in February 2016 to build a small modular reactor at Idaho National Laboratory’s desert site, NuScale Power’s design was the only one in the pipeline.

Since then, 18 other reactor design groups have expressed interest in building at the desert site.
