Energy Innovation Series, Session #4

The CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program, with input and support from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Technology Transitions and Chief Commercialization Officer, is pleased to present the fourth session in the Energy Innovation Series.

Innovation in Advanced Nuclear Energy will focus on innovation occurring in nuclear energy. Dr. Rita Baranwal will give a brief keynote address on the Department’s priorities and the role of innovation in nuclear energy. CSIS Senior Fellow Jane Nakano will then moderate a discussion with Ashley Finan (INL), Todd Allen (University of Michigan), and Chris Colbert (Nuscale Power) on how various efforts in these categories fit into the innovation chain, from basic science to commercialization and deployment.

About Energy Innovation Series
Energy Innovation Series is a six-part discussion series focusing on specific categories of energy technology and aims to foster greater understanding of―and support for―the role of innovation in the energy system. The series investigates the innovation priorities of the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Laboratory Complex against the broader ecosystem, both domestic and international, for advancing a portfolio of solutions.

This series is made possible by support from ClearPath and the Energy Innovation Fund at National Philanthropic Trust.
