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.

​WASHINGTON, D.C. — In support of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, today the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a request for proposals (RFP) for uranium enrichment services to help establish a reliable domestic supply of fuels using high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU)—a crucial material needed to deploy advanced nuclear reactors, which will help reach President Biden’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, increase energy security, create good-paying jobs, and strengthen U.S. economic competitiveness. Currently, HALEU is not commercially available from U.S.-based suppliers, and boosting domestic supply could spur the development and deployment of advanced reactors in the United States.
