German public supports nuclear power
A new survey by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) indicates that 71 percent of the German public supports the continued use of nuclear energy in the country, while 29 percent want it ended. The survey results, which were reported by German news source Bild and elsewhere, come amid ongoing controversy regarding the current plans by the German government to shut down the nation’s three remaining nuclear power plants in mid-April.

Ms. Suibel Schuppner is the Director of the Office of Nuclear Energy Technologies. She leads crosscutting research programs to improve and advance technologies in support of the U.S. nuclear industry and competitive university and research opportunities for the nuclear community. The crosscutting programs include modeling and simulation; advanced materials and manufacturing; advanced sensors and instrumentation; and access to unique national laboratory and university facilities and expertise. The university and competitive research programs execute various Office of Nuclear Energy’s competitive funding opportunities open to industry, universities, and laboratories, and manage the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) initiative. Ms. Schuppner also serves as an U.S. member for the Generation IV International Forum Policy Group, which is a cooperative international endeavor that conducts collaborative research and development (R&D) on the next generation of nuclear energy systems.
Prior to her current position, Ms. Schuppner managed various R&D programs, such as the Advanced Sensors and Instrumentation (ASI), the International Nuclear Energy Research Initiative (I‑NERI), the Nuclear Energy University Programs (NEUP), and the Nuclear Energy Research Initiative (NERI). She also worked on international programs that supported bilateral and multilateral collaboration to advance nuclear energy. She was an U.S. Patent Examiner in the area of multiplex communications and worked as an Electrical Engineer for the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Facilities Engineering Division.
Ms. Schuppner holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Boston University, a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts degree in German Language and Literature from the University of Maryland. As part of this Dual Degree program, she completed an internship at Pepperl+Fuchs in Germany, helping to develop proximity sensors for the automobile industry.
