ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

The session will be available to join at 8:30AM (9:30AM EDT).
The aggressive goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 for the U.S. power sector presents a number of challenges with respect to energy portfolio management that is influenced by numerous factors including regulated versus deregulated energy markets, regional variations in future carbon-free/carbon-neutral energy sources, and economic drivers. Expansion of nuclear energy, which currently provides 55% of carbon-free electricity, has the potential to be a cornerstone of future energy strategies. This panel will discuss the future role of nuclear energy deployment within the context of energy portfolio management and net-zero carbon goals from the viewpoint of US utilities and energy suppliers.
