GAIN NE Vouchers Announced
U.S. Advanced Nuclear Technology Projects to Receive $18 million from the U.S. Department of Energy
November 13, 2018
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced funding selections for eleven domestic advanced nuclear technology projects. These projects, located across six states, will receive varying amounts for a total of approximately $18 million in funding, with project values totaling approximately $25 million. The projects are cost-shared and will allow industry-led teams, including participants from federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities, to advance the state of U.S. commercial nuclear capability.

DOE has selected five companies to receive technology development vouchers under the GAIN program. The companies selected are Westinghouse Electric Company (Cranberry Township, PA) in the amount of $420,000; Elysium Industries (Clifton Park, NY) in the amount of $500,000; NexDefense (Atlanta, GA) in the amount of $400,000; Exelon Generation (Kennett Square, PA) in the amount of $480,000; and Eastman Chemical Company (Kingsport, TN) in the amount of $350,000. Further detail and description of these awards can be found under the GAIN website.

Technology Commercialization Fund

September 27, 2018 
A $20+ million funding opportunity that leverages the R&D funding in the applied energy programs to mature promising energy technologies with the potential for high impact for commercialization with a private industry partner.  These funds are matched with funds from private partners to promote promising energy technologies for commercial purposes.  

The goal of the TCF is two-fold. First, it is designed to increase the number of energy technologies developed at DOE's national labs that graduate to commercial development and achieve commercial impact (Topic 1 Proposals). Second, the TCF will enhance the Department's technology transitions system with a forward-looking and competitive approach to lab-industry partnerships (Topic 2 Proposals).  Industry can participate in either Topic 1 or Topic 2 proposals:

PDF Version Third Edition 

This directory was created in partnership between the 
Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN)
and Third Way, with the help of the United States Nuclear
Infrastructure Council (USNIC). 

It offers a sample of companies engaged in the development
of advanced nuclear technologies and should not be 
considered a comprehensive list of this industry. If you
are interested in additional information please go to the
contact tab and leave a message.

If your company is a developer or supplier in the advanced nuclear technology area and you want to participate in the directory, please check back on December 1st for an new updated link

The next revision deadline is December 31, 2018.
