Nuclear power resilience in a changing climate
All 92 U.S. power reactors operating today need water—in the right place and at the right time. But extreme weather events, including floods, droughts, hurricanes, and heat waves, upend expectations and demand resilience: the ability to anticipate, accommodate, and recover from adverse impacts.
Resilience was built into today’s nuclear power plants decades ago. Weather data and climate forecasts not available then can be factored into risk analysis now to ensure the plants remain resilient in a changing climate.

While nuclear waste policy remains a hotly debated topic in Washington and the states, the U.S. Department of Energy continues its work developing the technical underpinnings of a comprehensive and nationally integrated nuclear waste management system. The DOE and its national laboratories are developing consent-based waste management facility siting processes, building a national transportation infrastructure for large-scale nuclear waste transportation, and creating innovative tools and technologies for integrated system support through extended storage, subsequent transportation, and final disposal. The panelists will discuss various DOE-sponsored activities, including consent-based siting approaches; system analyses to evaluate the integrated approach for transport, storage, and disposal; investigation of interim storage options and facility designs; planning for transportation of radioactive materials with stakeholder interactions (including states and tribes); and prototype railcar development and testing.
