  • Small-Scale Nuclear Report for Alaska Published

ACEP has just released an updated report on small nuclear technologies, completed at the request of the Alaska Legislature. The report, titled “Small-Scale Nuclear Power: An option for Alaska?” includes an overview of the current status of both small modular and micro nuclear reactor technologies, including licensing, policy and economic considerations. The report also incorporates a number of recommendations related to continued technology tracking, education, and ensuring Alaska use cases and concerns are considered at the national level.

These recommendations are based on presentations and discussions that took place during a four-part education series on small nuclear technologies hosted by ACEP. Thank you to the over 300 individuals who participated in these online sessions over the past several months, representing business, utilities, Alaska Native organizations and research sectors.
