USNIC Expands Focus on Promoting New Nuclear through U.S. Government Deployment
of Micro and Small Modular Reactors
Washington, DC – The United States Nuclear Industry Council (USNIC) announced today that it is expanding its focus within the U.S. government to support the nuclear industry’s intergovernmental coordination for deployment of micro and small modular nuclear reactors. “Our goal is to assist industry at all levels within the government to meet the current and anticipated demands for advanced nuclear technology. We are initially concentrating our efforts within the Department of Defense (DoD), although we are not limiting our focus exclusively there,” said C.H. “Bud” Albright, Chairman,President and CEO of USNIC.
“As the benefits of advanced nuclear technology become abundantly clear, the need increases to assist industry and the government in deployment of smaller and safer means of generating electricity. Among the first-movers in government toward this goal is the Department of Defense where recognition of the need to deploy advanced technology for security purposes, and for the benefits of zero emission generation of electricity, is becoming clear. Advanced Nuclear Technology aids in making DoD’s domestic infrastructure more resilient to an attack on the electricity grid. Moreover, these reactors enhance the ability to respond quickly with delivery of electricity for forward operations, and to avoid system outages, without increasing carbon emissions,” Albright continued.
