Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear

The latest information about advanced nuclear energy is now a mouse click away.

The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) just unveiled Milestones in Advanced Nuclear, an interactive website that provides the latest news in the U.S. nuclear power industry.

GAIN is industry’s gateway into the national labs. Now GAIN is also the gateway into nuclear news.
Your resource for engagement with NNSA on U.S. nuclear technology export, international safeguards, international security, and proliferation resistance in nuclear systems. Nexus provides a single point of access to NNSA.
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.
Advanced nuclear energy systems hold enormous potential to lower emissions, create new jobs, and build an even stronger economy. The Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP) will speed the demonstration of advanced reactors through cost-shared partnerships with U.S. industry. By rapidly developing these advanced reactors that hold so much promise, we can expand access to clean energy and take advantage of market opportunities before key infrastructure and supply chain capabilities are lost.

JUST IN: GAIN 3rd round of FY21 nuclear energy voucher recipients have been announced. The GAIN Voucher Program accelerates the #innovation and application of advanced #nuclear energy technologies. Learn more about the program & awardees #GAINedge
A new key research initiative at EPRI is focusing on technology for Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) and online monitoring for high
temperature applications. As an important part of this effort, we are looking to build a network of vendors and technology
researchers to facilitate collaborations in this area.

We are also hosting a technical workshop as part of this initiative. The objective of the workshop is to identify promising sensor
technologies and solutions. The workshop will help increase awareness and facilitate collaboration between EPRI and others.
Don’t miss NEI's International Uranium Fuel Seminar at the Westin Savannah Nov. 7-9. It is a prime networking opportunity for nuclear fuel and utility leaders.
Explore the issues impacting the nuclear fuel cycle by attending two half-day sessions on fuel policy, markets, and trade issues, as well as plenty of networking opportunities.

Conference Webpage:
This workshop gathers subject matter experts, managers, researchers, vendors, and students to discuss the progress and advances of molten salt reactor (MSR) technologies. This comprises thermal or fast neutron spectrum reactor designs as well as chloride and/or fluoride salt concepts.

Presentations will focus on molten salt chemistry, actinide and radionuclide chemistry under molten salt conditions, modeling, thermodynamics, corrosion, and safeguards. Additionally, this three-day workshop will include tours, a poster session, invited lecturers, exhibitors, and networking.

Submit your abstract for an oral presentation or poster session by November 30, 2021!  Click here for the abstract page.

Join us March 28-30, 2022, at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the State of Washington to discover and share the latest in advancing molten salt reactor systems.

The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) just unveiled Milestones in Advanced Nuclear, an interactive website that provides the latest news in the U.S. nuclear power industry.

GAIN is industry's gateway into the national labs. Now GAIN is also the gateway into nuclear news.

“Advanced nuclear has been building momentum over the past five years and it is getting difficult to stay current with the latest developments from all facets of our industry," GAIN Director Christine King said. “The website offers a concise description of each item, and why this milestone is important and links to the most recent news for that item."

The milestones were developed with the help of more than 100 people across the U.S. representing the nuclear energy industry, utility executives, and lawmakers.

“This website is a great tool to see our progress as an industry," said Peter Hastings, vice president of Kairos Power, an advanced nuclear reactor developer. “It is extremely helpful to show not only our company's progress but also that of other advanced reactor developers as well as the industry as a whole. This website makes it easy to see the immense opportunity advanced nuclear represents for our clean energy future.".



WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) announced the rollout of U.S. Nuclear Nexus (, a tool designed to foster timely connections between NNSA and the U.S. nuclear industry on the global deployment of advanced nuclear technology on August 17. Nexus will act as a single point of access for NNSA and DOE National Laboratory recommendations, training, tools, and other relevant technical expertise and guidance on nonproliferation.

​The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) announced today that two nuclear companies will be provided GAIN Nuclear Energy (NE) Vouchers 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 third set of awards in FY 2021.  ​

The business selected to receive GAIN nuclear energy vouchers for Round 3 FY 2021 are: Engineered Soulutions Group LLC - Brevard, NC and Vega Wave Systems, Inc. - West Chicago, IL.



​In Service Inspection is a major challenge to consider for future Generation IV Reactors safety. Therefore, a large focus of R&D work has been performed since 2010 in France for the Sodium Fast Reactor systems (SFR), mainly dedicated to the inspection of reactor block structures, primary components and circuits, and Power Conversion System main components (Heat Exchangers). In Service Inspection requirements have to be taken into account since the early preconceptual design phase, then consolidated through the basic design phase with more detailed specifications leading to increase the inspection tools ability for immersed sodium structures of SFRs, at about 200°C (shut down conditions). Inspection within the main vessel should be performed either with transducers immersed in sodium (with associated in sodium robotics) and with transducers located out of sodium medium. Nondestructive Examination, Telemetry and Imaging are qualified with experimental in-water and then in-sodium testing, using ultrasonic transducers. Experimental results are then compared to simulations using French CIVA software platform results. Repair was also part of this program, with laser system development. This webinar provides a technical overview of this ISI&R program that involves specific international collaborations done through GENIV mainly. Of course, it also benefits to other Gen4 systems.
