Technology Maturation

When it comes to deploying new technologies, there are two primary challenges facing innovators – early-stage R&D and demonstration. The objective of GAIN is to accelerate progress through these challenges.​

  • ​GAIN will provide an R&D test bed to address early technical uncertainties.
  • GAIN can serve as a demonstration platform to address cost uncertainties associated with commercial deployment.


The diagram above is a visual depiction of the relationship between the readiness of new technologies for deployment and the levels of financial investment needed to reach them. Below, a conceptual illustration of an advanced reactor plant design represents just one of the many innovative concepts being pioneered by private industry, government and universities.
