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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

Effort to overturn Montana’s pronuclear law advances
A Montana citizens group received the go-ahead this week to collect signatures for a ballot initiative that could wind up repealing a recently enacted law that allows the state legislature to okay the construction of nuclear power facilities without direct input from the public.

Nuclear energy supplies nearly 20 percent of all our domestic electricity generation, and more than 55 percent of carbon-free generation. Nuclear power plants supply the baseload, always-available emissions-free electricity, while providing significant benefits to regional economies. This presentation will focus on the economics and policy of nuclear power, for both electricity and non-electricity needs. Discussion will revolve around various revenue models for current and future nuclear plants, including regulated and wholesale markets, and opportunities for current and next-generational nuclear to thrive in a future powered by clean energy. Panelists will discuss economics beyond electricity needs, such as first responder power, hydrogen production, and process heat for industrial purposes. Panelists will also highlight opportunities to engage and learn more about nuclear economics.
