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.

How can a NWM organization maintain continuity of expertise and capabilities over what could be a decades-long mission? NWM organizations world-wide have realized that preservation of knowledge for their many complex systems is a risk worsened by the long timescales.
A robust knowledge management (KM) program is essential for maintenance of the specialized expertise needed for safety, security, and performance objectives. Key considerations for designing, implementing, and maintaining an effective knowledge management program will be discussed during this session. A demonstration of the DOE-Office of Nuclear Energy KM repository and its NWM Taxonomy will be included in the discussion.
