Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

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.
