DOE puts $9.35 million toward high-energy-density plasma research
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science (DOE-SC) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) on July 27 announced $9.35 million for 21 research projects in high-energy-density laboratory plasmas. High-energy-density (HED) plasma research, originally developed to support the U.S. nuclear weapons program, has applications in astrophysics, fusion power plant development, medicine, nuclear and particle physics, and radioisotope production.

With many nuclear plants facing economic headwinds and many simply not profitable any longer, bold and courageous strategies are required to ensure that nuclear power is part of the energy conversation going forward. Simply replacing obsolete components or even systems without fundamentally changing the way nuclear plants are operated and maintained will not generate the kind of transformation that the industry must undertake. This panel will discuss current projects that, taken together, represent the best chance for nuclear power to remain viable well into the 21st century.
