The energy market is changing because of (1) the goal of a low-carbon energy system and (2) the expansion of low-operating-cost wind and solar PV that collapse electricity prices at certain times. We examine the changes in markets and requirements and alternative nuclear system designs with large-scale heat storage to enable base-load nuclear plants to provide variable electricity to the grid and heat to industry. In the U.S., the industrial demand for heat is about twice the total electricity production; thus, there are two major markets for nuclear energy in the U.S. The addition of heat storage enables integration of electricity and heat markets because it partly decouples in time heat production versus heat and electricity to customers. Separate from these considerations, large-scale heat storage has massive implications for grid resilience because energy production is partly decoupled from the grid.

The workshop will host professionals from industry, government and academia from around the globe who will gather to present and discuss cutting edge technical issues and solutions to develop and deploy molten salt reactor systems. 

Extended abstracts will focus on molten salt chemistry, actinide and radionuclide chemistry under molten alt conditions, modeling, thermodynamics, corrosion, and safeguards.

Purpose:
*GAIN, EPRI, NEI workshop to exchange information among advanced nuclear technology developers, commercial instrument suppliers, and sensor researchers from DOE national laboratories, universities, and industry
Objectives:
*Identify measurement requirements and needs for advanced reactor concepts: (HTRs, FRs, MSRs)
*Create phased development approach for sensors with demonstration experiments and related facilities (irradiation test, single effect test, advanced operation modes) as near-term targets
*Understand current national laboratory capability and identify gaps to inform applicable DOE research programs

Please mark your calendars for August 30 – September 2, 2021 to attend the MSR Workshop at PNNL’s Discovery Hall in Richland, Washington. We greatly apologize for the postponement of the Workshop and appreciate your support as we move forward in future planning. Please keep an eye on our MSR Workshop 2021 website. We are committed to share event updates with you and build momentum as we prepare to see you next year.
