Wanted: Information leading to a neutron source for fusion energy R&D
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science published a notice in the March 27 Federal Register calling for input on technological approaches to a Fusion Prototypic Neutron Source (FPNS) for materials irradiation research under DOE-SC’s Fusion Energy Sciences program, as well as partnership models that could accelerate the construction and delivery of the facility. The request for information (RFI) calls for responses by May 11.

Amid continued supply chain issues and economic downturns, a post-pandemic Europe is facing a brutal wintertime energy crisis spurred by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, nuclear phaseouts in Germany and elsewhere, France’s grid troubles, and the loss of Russian gas imports for heating and electricity. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, ANS activated its Rapid Response Taskforce and recruited members and other experts on reactor safety and radiation protection to help provide clear and accurate information to members of the media and the public. Now nearly nine months into Russia’s long war against a Western-supplied Ukraine, winter is here for an energy-crunched Europe – what does that mean for nuclear energy, safety, and communications? What lessons can be learned to help ride out this perfect storm of war, short-sighted energy policies, economic troubles, and freezing temperatures? Are we facing a new world for energy policymaking and how will Europe and the rest of the world fare this winter?
