U.S. Nuclear Energy Project

The Nuclear Energy Program at CSIS collaborates with industry, government, and the non-governmental sector to address the challenges facing the peaceful use of nuclear energy, including the challenges to the existing U.S. fleet. The case for U.S. leadership in nuclear energy, domestically and globally, is based on various dimensions of national security benefits to the U.S. While there are several critical areas of focus going forward, a principal area of immediate focus in the program will be the development and deployment of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs).
