The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) announced today that four companies will be provided a GAIN Nuclear Energy (NE) Voucher to accelerate the innovation and application of advanced nuclear technologies. NE vouchers provide advanced nuclear technology innovators with access to the extensive nuclear research capabilities and expertise available across the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory complex. This is the first award for FY 2023.
The businesses selected to receive a GAIN nuclear energy voucher for Round 1 FY 2023 are: Dow, Midland, MI; Flibe Energy, Huntsville, AL; Oklo Inc., Santa Clara, CA; Radiant Industries Inc., El Segundo, CA

The latest update to Third Way’s Advanced Nuclear Map reveals unprecedented growth and progress in a clean energy technology with tremendous potential. Thanks to consistent bipartisan support across multiple administrations—including clear endorsement by the Biden administration as a pillar of its clean energy strategy—the industry has not only expanded, but projects are closer to deployment and commercialization than ever before. Continued support for advanced nuclear will be critical to our economic, jobs, climate, geopolitical, and national security interests.

By the year 2050, we need to dramatically change the way we produce and consume energy if we are to achieve a number of key targets.

We must also consider the implications of those energy choices.

The GAIN Energy Calculator will allow state, local, and federal policy makers, students, researchers, and other interested stakeholders to visualize and model their policy changes and see real-world results based on validated science.

 This workshop seeks to identify cybersecurity research and development needs to support future nuclear innovation.  The conversation will include panel discussions about the efficient and effective implementation of cybersecurity risk management and controls for advanced reactors, as well as industry-envisioned future deployment concepts that may need new approaches to cybersecurity.  The sessions will be organized around 1) the perspectives of reactor designers as they consider current and future deployments; and 2) barriers to implementing current and emerging cybersecurity best practices in nuclear control systems.

DOE Establishes HALEU Consortium 

WASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced the establishment of a high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) consortium. The HALEU Consortium will help inform DOE activities to secure a domestic supply of HALEU—a crucial material needed to develop and deploy advanced reactors in the United States.

Membership is free and open to any U.S. entity, association, and government organization involved in the nuclear fuel cycle. It also may include organizations whose facilities are in ally or partner nations designated by DOE.
