The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) announced today that three nuclear 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 fourth and final award for FY 2022.
The businesses selected to receive a GAIN nuclear energy voucher for Round 4 FY 2022 are: Curio Solutions, Washington, D.C.: Elementl Pwer LLC, Greer, South Caroling; Tennessee Valley Authority, Chattanoogo, Tennessee.

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.

Last year, Bill Gates was speaking at the Nuclear Energy Assembly's virtual conference about his company's plans to build an advanced reactor in Wyoming.

Julian Colvin, a 22-year-old nuclear engineering student at North Carolina State University, was listening and posted a question in the chat: “I'm Julian. I go to NC State, and I wonder what a state like Kentucky could do to attract advanced nuclear projects?"

Colvin, a passionate advocate of nuclear energy, wasn't really expecting a response. “I was sort of half hoping Bill Gates, or some other business tycoon, would see my message and offer some great advice. In the end, I think the response I got was much better," he said.

​That response came from another attendee, Christine King, director of the U.S. Department of Energy's Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN).
