Advanced Nuclear Summit and Showcase
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Advanced Reactor Concepts LLC (ARC) made a presentation of its ARC-100 reactor at the January 27, 2016 Advanced Nuclear Summit and Showcase in Washington, D.C. ARC’s Senior Vice President Dr. John Sackett spoke on a technology panel, and ARC team members met with summit attendees at an Industry Showcase after the panel presentations.
This event was sponsored by Third Way and the Idaho National Laboratory, partnering with Argonne National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The sponsors note that in “North America, 48 companies, backed by more than $1.6 billion in private capital, are developing plans for advanced nuclear reactors. The influx of ideas and investment into the advanced nuclear industry has made it a burgeoning part of the clean energy sector. The Advanced Nuclear Summit and Showcase builds upon the conversations sparked by the recent White House Summit on Nuclear Energy and the Nuclear Innovation Workshops sponsored by the Idaho National Laboratory.” The Summit featured national policymakers and influencers and established that there is a robust advanced nuclear sector being developed by private companies and research institutions, and that government has a vital role to play in bringing the promise of the sector to reality.
