Next for nuclear: Energy arbitrage
Can nuclear power plants prosper in the grid of 2030 or 2035, when new wind and solar farms will make electricity prices even more volatile? Can plants install energy storage that will help them keep running at full power, 24/7, to ride out times of surplus and sell their energy only when prices are high?

A workshop Sponsored by the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee and the U.S. Women in Nuclear
Come join the gamified, in-person workshop, Thursday December 2 at 7:00 pm, centered around emotional intelligence in the workplace: Nuclear Family Feud! Similar to the popular game show, the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee in collaboration with U.S. Women in Nuclear have gathered a number of fun and thought provoking questions and polled the ANS community. See how well you know our nuclear family with questions ranging from “What’s the best isotope” to “What’s the most common reason people leave nuclear.” No need to come with a team prepared- we will team everyone at the workshop! This is a virtual version of the in-person event on Wednesday.
Survey says… we need your help! In preparation for Nuclear Family Feud, we need your help in providing responses on a wide range of topics from the color of electrons to workplace conflict. Then, tune in on Wednesday, December 1 (onsite), or Thursday, December 2 (virtual), where players will earn points based on your responses. Please provide your anonymous input by participating in this brief survey, whether you are planning to attend the Winter Meeting or not. Registration for Thursday’s virtual game is open to everyone. Survey participants can choose to enter a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. Survey closes November 26.
