2023 Nuclear News Recap

It's been a busy year so far for nuclear news. Here is a recap of the nuclear-related news articles featured in ETEC's weekly e-newsletter.

Tennessee Governor Proposes Nuclear Fast Track Fund:

What's Happening - Nuclear Industry in East Tennessee

Governor Lee's proposed $50M Nuclear Fast Track fund investment means a lot to companies in the nuclear industry. In addition to the financial support, it publicly conveys the State's support for innovators in the nuclear industry. It says, "Come to Tennessee! We believe in your mission to create a clean energy future, and we support you."
Building on our Manhattan Project era legacy of nuclear innovation, East Tennessee is again at the forefront of new nuclear technologies that have the potential to change the world. East Tennessee has many valuable resources for companies in the nuclear industry.

A few of these are:
  • A nuclear advocate in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, Chair of the House Energy and Water Development Subcommittee and co-chair of the House Nuclear Cleanup Caucus.
  • A pro-nuclear Tennessee Governor who is proposing a $50 million Nuclear Fast Track fund to recruit more innovative nuclear companies to our state.
  • Access to research and development capabilities and collaboration with some of the world’s experts relative to advanced nuclear technologies at the Tennessee Valley Authority, Y-12 National Security Complex, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
  • TVA’s Clinch River Site where they are making plans to host an Advanced Nuclear Reactor Technology Park with the potential for multiple different reactor technologies.
  • In East Tennessee Centrus Energy designs, tests, and manufactures the world’s most advanced uranium enrichment centrifuge machines. Centrus also supports other companies in the advanced reactor fuel cycle by leveraging their decades of expertise in uranium chemistry, nuclear facility licensing, and criticality analysis.
  • A hub of advanced nuclear innovators making their home in Oak Ridge: Kairos Power, TRISO-X, and Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation; along with fusion energy innovators, General Fusion.
  • A pro-nuclear community with a pool of talented individuals who have training and understanding of nuclear operations.
  • Nearly 150 companies working in the nuclear industry statewide - see the 2022 nuclear industry map here.
