Please join us to hear perspectives on the future of nuclear energy offered by individuals that have played a significant role in framing the United States nuclear energy policies of the past, present, and future.
This free event is open to all.
The Office of Nuclear Energy within the Department of Energy plays a primary role in supporting and executing nuclear energy related research, development, and deployment for the United States Government. Established by President Jimmy Carter, the Office of Nuclear Energy has been privileged to be led and supported by individuals passionate about nuclear technology and with unique and novel perspectives on the future of nuclear energy. As the Biden administration considers nominees and candidates for the Assistant Secretary of Energy for Nuclear Energy role, we have brought together past leaders within the Office of Nuclear Energy, all of whom are ANS members and long-time participants in Society activities, for a unique panel discussion.
ANS members who register for the event will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.
