Engineering professionals across the nation recently celebrated Engineers Week—or EWeek, and employees at Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC joined the fun. Engineers from Pantex, the Uranium Processing Facility and Y-12 visited local schools throughout the week, encouraging hundreds of young people to make a difference in the world through an engineering career. EWeek was started 66 years ago by the National Society of Professional Engineers to ensure student awareness of engineering and technology careers using real-world examples and education.
Dr. David Greene and Dr. Jilleah Welch have released a report titled, The Impact of Increased Fuel Economy for Light-Duty Vehicles on the Distribution of Income in the U.S.: A Retrospective and Prospective Analysis, which was sponsored by the Energy Foundation and ORNL.

Let us add our voices to the long list of those who are celebrating Thom Mason’s extraordinary leadership of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We had the opportunity to work closely with Mason over the more than six combined years we led the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy, and we can attest to his vision, his character and his technological and managerial excellence. While the primary mission of Oak Ridge is in the basic sciences, the laboratory pioneered the development of a wide range of nuclear energy technologies and remains one of the world’s leading nuclear energy research institutions
