US DOE announces funding selectees for nuclear projects

10 April 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has recently announced funding selectees for multiple domestic advanced nuclear technology projects. Four projects in two states will receive varying amounts for a total of approximately USD19 M in funding. The projects are cost-shared and will allow industry-led teams, including participants from federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities, to advance the state of U.S. commercial nuclear capability.

The awards are through the Office of Nuclear Energy’s (NE) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development.

The solicitation is broken into three funding pathways: (1) First-of-a-Kind (FOAK) Nuclear Demonstration Readiness Project pathway addresses major advanced reactor design development projects or complex technology advancements for existing plants to be deployed by the mid-to-late 2020s. (2) Advanced Reactor Development Projects pathway to improve the capabilities and commercialization potential of advanced reactor designs and technologies. (3) Regulatory Assistance Grants pathway focused on obtaining certification and licensing approvals for advanced reactor designs and capabilities.
