Collaborations WITH... The nuclear energy industry Engaging nuclear and other industries is a core INL objective. As the nations lead laboratory for nuclear energy research and development INL contributes analysis and information to inform industry progress. In FY 2011 INL held or supported 21 workshops with industry government and international entities. INLs nuclear industry engagements crosscut laboratory government and commercial sectors. Sustaining the fleet Half of the nations current reactor fleet 104 reactors that supply nearly 20 percent of U.S. electricity are more than 30 years old. Sustaining and modernizing these plants is essential for their continued safe and efficient operation. Such efforts also can help bridge the implementation of new reactor designs. Several INL partnerships support modernization and sustainability of the current reactor fleet. For example INL is engaged with industry and participates in the Department of Energy Light Water Reactor Sustainability Utilities Working Group whose members include 41 operating sites and 69 reactors. The groups goal is to identify and prioritize research aimed at fleet sustainability and modernization. Diablo Canyon Power Plant provides electricity for nearly 3 million homes in northern and central California. PhotocourtesyPacificGasElectric 10
