  • Meet the Small-Scale Nuclear Vendors at the Next Town Hall Meeting

Continuing the conversation after the first small-scale nuclear town hall meeting held last month, a panel discussion featuring six vendors for nuclear microreactors will be held on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m. at the Fairbanks Pipeline Training Center, 3605 Cartwright Court, building C.

Panelists at the public event will share information about their technology and offer insights on the potential market for nuclear microreactors in Alaska. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

Gwen Holdmann, the associate vice chancellor of research, innovation and industry partnerships at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will lead the discussion. Holdmann facilitates the Alaska Nuclear Energy Working Group and has explored the use of small-scale nuclear devices as an alternative energy source.

ACEP and the Fairbanks Economic Development Corp. are hosting the presentation. More information about the Alaska Nuclear Energy Working Group is available at
