As the voice of American nuclear engineers and scientists, ANS congratulates NuScale Power for receiving the first-ever final safety evaluation report for a small modular reactor issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The deployment of advanced nuclear energy will be vital in meeting America’s clean air targets, halting climate change and decarbonizing our economy. Advanced reactors will shore up the power grid’s reliability by supplying industries and communities with a constant stream of carbon-free energy.

In a world of climate change and economic insecurity, we cannot afford to ignore the potential contributions of advanced nuclear energy.
