The DRUM program: Cataloging America’s abandoned uranium mines
Based on a review of U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) records and available data from numerous agencies, there are an estimated 4,225 mines across the country that provided uranium ore to the U.S. government for defense-related purposes between 1947 and 1970. To aid in the cleanup of these legacy uranium mines and establish a record of their locations and current conditions, the Defense-Related Uranium Mines (DRUM) program was established within the Department of Energy’s Office of Legacy Management (LM).

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.
