Third NRC/DOE Workshop Set on Advanced Reactor Designs

The agency defines advanced reactors as technologies using something other than water to cool the reactor core. NRC is currently discussing one advanced design with a vendor considering applying for design certification.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy have scheduled their third joint workshop about innovative reactor technologies for April 25-26 in Bethesda, Md. "We are encouraging interested parties to continue discussing the most efficient and effective path forward to safely develop and deploy advanced reactors in the United States," said Vonna Ordaz, acting director of NRC's Office of New Reactors. "We expect to discuss topics such as modeling and testing innovative technologies, as well as how vendors might approach getting their designs approved for U.S. use."

The workshop is free and open to the public, although NRC strongly recommends pre-registering for it here by April 17.

The agency defines advanced reactors as technologies using something other than water to cool the reactor core. NRC is currently discussing one advanced design with a vendor considering applying for design certification and indicated it "remains available for early-stage discussion with other potential advanced reactor vendors."

The workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Bethesda North Marriott, 5701 Marinelli Road. It will include presentations and structured and open discussions using a facilitator.
