Environmental Management: GAO Report Shows Mission Far From Complete
This spring, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released an insightful report reviewing and summarizing the status and performance of the largest projects and operations within the Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (EM), which is responsible for the cleanup of hazardous and radioactive waste at sites and facilities that have been contaminated from decades of nuclear weapons production and nuclear energy research.

Avoiding catastrophic impacts of climate change will require near-zero electricity sector CO2 emissions by mid-century, if not sooner. Achieving the "decarbonization" of even the electric power sector will require preserving our current fleet of nuclear plants and investing in innovative next-generation nuclear technologies. Panelists will provide an update on the political landscape of nuclear energy looking forward past the 2020 election. There will be a discussion on hot topics such as opportunities for nuclear and renewables to complement the electricity grid, accelerating the deployment of advanced reactors, and non-electricity applications of nuclear power plants. Panelists will also highlight the opportunities for ANS members, particularly students and young professionals, to engage and learn more about the policy world.
