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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

DOE-NE opens HALEU Consortium with focus on information exchange
The Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy announced December 7 that its new HALEU Consortium is open for membership. And not just from U.S. enrichers, fuel fabricators, and others working in the front-end fuel cycle, but from “any U.S. entity, association, and government organization involved in the nuclear fuel cycle,” and—at the DOE’s discretion—“organizations whose facilities are in ally or partner nations.” The HALEU Consortium will essentially serve as an information clearinghouse to meet DOE-NE’s ongoing needs for firm supply and demand data as it supports the development of a commercial domestic high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) infrastructure to fuel advanced reactors. The consortium is open for business almost one full year after the DOE first requested public input on its structure.

The nuclear industry is highly impacted by national policy. From waste management to R&D funding to energy policy in general, policy decisions shape projects across the whole industry. If you ever wondered how engineers and scientist can help influence this policy, the ANS Congressional Fellowship is a great opportunity to get directly involved. This session will highlight the experiences of panelists who took their technical background and transitioned into policy areas through the ANS Congressional Fellowship. Whether you have questions about what an ANS Congressional Fellow does or about recent policies such as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and Inflation Reduction Act, this session will provide insights on the relationship between policy and the nuclear industry.
