Delivering a faster, more affordable approach to advance nuclear energy
The Transformational Challenge Reactor Program is bringing to bear additive manufacturing (AM) and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver enabling technologies for advanced reactors. Through the application of these advanced technologies the program targets delivering solutions to the high costs and lengthy deployment timelines that threaten the future of nuclear energy—the country’s largest source of carbon-free energy.
