Through innovative and successful approaches to public-private partnerships, the United States has recovered from a trailing role in global launch services. What can we learn from NASA to enable a similar reversal in U.S. nuclear energy? This question is rendered urgent by the pressing need for clean energy globally, the geopolitical importance of U.S. participation in nuclear energy trade, and the demonstration policies currently under consideration in Washington, D.C.
The panel for this briefing includes experts from NASA, Clean Air Task Force, and Kairos Power. Remarks will include findings from the Nuclear Innovation Alliance report “In Search of a SpaceX for Nuclear Energy,” which suggests strategies for efficiently supporting demonstration projects.
