Nuclear power is an efficient and reliable source of zero-emission energy. It generates a meaningful portion of our country’s “always-on, baseload” electricity used in our homes and businesses.
American innovators are currently working on the next generation of nuclear reactors to keep our country at the forefront of this important, clean energy source. To power future generations of nuclear reactors, we must develop the next generation of nuclear fuels.
The Advanced Nuclear Fuel Availability Act establishes a public-private solution to develop, manufacture and transport those next generation fuels to ensure that we can power tomorrow’s advanced reactors.
