The release of the President’s FY 2023 Budget offers an opportunity for better understanding the landscape of nuclear energy priorities with the Department of Energy (DOE). Activities within the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy support future reactor deployments, development of advanced reactor fuels, waste reduction, and management research, and many other areas that are critical for the longevity of existing, as well as for future, nuclear technologies. Join ANS as representatives from the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy offer perspectives on what the proposed funding means for the future of many important nuclear energy programs and initiatives.
