ANS established a Special Committee on Nuclear in the States in 2015 to focus on providing information to state policymakers on the benefits of new and existing nuclear energy facilities. The impetus for the Committee’s work was the release of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan (CPP) in August 3, 2015, which directed the states to create their own energy plans to meet target emission goals.
The Special Committee is led by Dr. Peter B. Lyons, former Department of Energy (DOE) Assistant Secretary. A team of ANS members has been organized to develop potential policy options for states that include nuclear energy in their Clean Power Plan compliance plans.
The Special Committee is led by Dr. Peter B. Lyons, former Department of Energy (DOE) Assistant Secretary, and Immediate ANS Past President Eugene Grecheck.
