Microreactor Program Review 2023

March 8 – 9, 2023

Meeting Objectives:

This Program Review will be focused on ongoing progress for each Technical Focus Area and discussion of path forward for the remainder of FY23. Discussions will highlight:

  • Accomplishments to date and progress on key efforts
  • Issues/concerns related to meeting FY23 goals and M2 milestones
  • Potential collaboration with other NE programs
  • Initial thoughts on priorities for FY24 and beyond
  • Review participant questions

Program Vision:

Through cross-cutting research and development and technology demonstration support, by 2025 the Microreactor Program will:

  • Achieve technological breakthroughs for key features of microreactors
  • Empower initial demonstration of the next advanced reactor in the US
  • Enable successful demonstrations of multiple domestic commercial microreactors

Program Objectives:

  1. Meet critical R&D needs of existing developers that require national lab or university expertise or capabilities
  2. Develop R&D infrastructure to support design, demonstration, regulatory, and safety related tests and to collect data to validate M&S tools.
  3. Develop advanced technologies and concepts for next-generation microreactor applications and systems
  4. Enable future microreactor applications (e.g., district heat, hydrogen production, and defense applications).
