Reliable, efficient and emission-free – nuclear energy will continue to be a critical component of our nation’s baseload power needs. Advanced nuclear technology tested at Idaho National Laboratory and around the country offers greater promise with increased efficiency, security and renewability, yet faces obstacles to reaching market scalability.
I am proud to lead, with Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act and serve as honorary co-chairs of the Atlantic Council’s Task Force on U.S. Nuclear Energy Leadership.
Work must continue to lift barriers to American innovation and leadership in nuclear energy research and development.
– Sen. Mike Crapo, Member, Subcommittee on Energy, Natural Resources and Infrastructure
