Bringing 21st-Century Innovation and Reform to the U.S. Nuclear Industry

  • 333 Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

After many years of failed attempts, a new path to an economically competitive domestic nuclear industry is close at hand. Nuclear micro-reactors (10 MW and smaller) allow for safe operation with radically simplified designs, making the case for far-reaching licensing and regulatory reform much stronger.

Policy elements needed for a better future include licensing reforms at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, extending the duration of federal purchase power agreements, and supporting construction of new fast reactors and advanced nuclear fuels.

Join us on Sept. 27 @ 3pm for We the Pizza and a panel including experts from the Breakthrough Institute, The Heritage Foundation, the ClearPath Foundation and R Street.
