4 Nuclear Energy Summit INL organized and co-hosted the New Millennium Nuclear Energy Summit in Washington D.C. to initiate development of a long-term strategy and path forward for nuclear energy in the U.S. The summit attracted U.S. utility and energy company executives the Nuclear Regulatory Commission chairman energy policymakers from the Obama administration and other political figures. Discussions focused on U.S. nuclear energy challenges including financing public-private partnerships infrastructure and new technology development. During the summit Energy Secretary Steven Chu endorsed creation of a national clean energy standard requiring utilities to increase their use of low-carbon energy sources including nuclear and clean-coal power. National Scientific User Facility The Advanced Test Reactor ATR National Scientific User Facility NSUF expanded beyond the simple idea of providing ATR irradiation space to external researchers. The facility is now defining a new 21st century model for stewardship of critical national capabilities. According to this model unique national capabilities for reactor-based testing and analysis at universities and other laboratories are available to NSUF users which enable the best scientific ideas to be paired with the nations relevant experimental capabilities ideas rather than institutions drive the research. More than two dozen industry CEOs labor and nongovernmental organization representatives energy investors and elected officials attended the Nuclear Energy Summit co-hosted by INL in Washington D.C.
