Lecture: "Modular Reactors: The Next Generation of Nuclear Power Plants"


Location: 136 DeBartolo Hall (View on map )

Idaho National Lab

As the climate crisis looms, many are taking a second look at nuclear power as a necessary solution to the massive amounts of energy needed if carbon-based fuels are to be phased out quickly. The U.S. Department of Energy, the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems, and NuScale Power are working to create a small modular nuclear plant at the Idaho National Laboratory site by the mid-2020s. Dr. Youssef Ballout, Director of the Reactor Systems Design & Analysis Division at the Idaho National Laboratory, will talk about the project and the future of nuclear energy.
