Penn State wants a Westinghouse eVinci microreactor on campus
Penn State University has announced plans to explore siting a Westinghouse Electric Company eVinci microreactor on its State College campus in central Pennsylvania. Under a memorandum of understanding to perform research and development work that could advance the future commercial deployment of eVinci, a team of researchers in Penn State’s Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering also plans to explore how eVinci could displace some fossil-fueled energy sources on campus.

While the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the major framework for international co-operation on climate change, a variety of clean energy and climate efforts have formed. One such effort is the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), which has become the leading ministerial forum for issues of global clean energy deployment. The U.S. hosted the original meeting of the CEM in 2010 and also hosted CEM7 in 2016. Over a decade after its inception, the 13th CEM meeting in 2022 will again be held in the U.S., this time hosted by Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. Three years ago, ministers from the U.S., Japan, and Canada established, under CEM, the Nuclear Innovation Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) initiative, which highlights the various roles nuclear energy can play in clean energy systems today and in the future. NICE Future currently has 13 participant countries and 17 partner organizations. Attendees will hear from those engaged with NICE Future about the history of the CEM talks, the evolution of the nuclear energy conversation within the CEM, and recent reflections by policymakers on accelerated pathways to net zero using nuclear innovation.
