Our Statement on the Introduction of the International Nuclear Energy Act

Today, Good Energy Collective released the following statement from Deputy Director Jackie Toth in support of the introduction of the International Nuclear Energy Act: 

“Done right, the export of U.S. advanced nuclear energy will be able to increase equitable access to clean energy for communities around the world. The International Nuclear Energy Act would provide the necessary resources for the United States to work with nuclear newcomer countries and the International Atomic Energy Agency to support the deployment of safe and secure nuclear plants across the globe. The Biden-Harris Administration has a finite window of opportunity to assert the United States’ leadership in climate diplomacy, including through advanced nuclear energy. This bill would finally scale our cooperation with allied nations on timely nuclear research, development, and deployment—including research through the state-of-the-art Versatile Test Reactor, a national user facility that would support decades of advanced nuclear innovation.”
