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.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

FERC to look at grid reliability
Spurred by last week’s power grid failure in Texas, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Monday announced that it will open a new proceeding to examine the threat that climate change and extreme weather events pose to electric reliability. The proceeding, FERC said, will investigate how grid operators prepare for and respond to these events, including droughts, extreme cold, wildfires, hurricanes, and prolonged heat waves.

In 2019, the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded Idaho National Laboratory (INL) a grant to develop dynamic procedures and decision-support solutions for advanced reactors. The grant was aimed towards developing and commercializing a system with the functionality to revolutionize operator and system efficiency, as compared to existing paper-based processes.
Hear firsthand from principal experts as they describe insights about the new technology that aims to address a variety of industry challenges. Topics of discussion include barriers to adoption and the large number of procedures and data architecture required to address advanced reactors that feature increased levels of automation, sensors, and instrumentation.
Panelists will also discuss innovative ways their universities are using the generic PWR (gPWR) full scope simulator in research and the classroom to educate the next generation of nuclear industry professionals.
