In the past several years the US nuclear industry has received growing levels of support from Washington — a major reversal from the heady days before the 2011 Fukushima disaster. This includes significant funding to keep existing reactors operating and to develop advanced and small modular reactors (SMRs), and coordinated governmental efforts to win US reactor vendors business in foreign markets. And with the energy transition and geopolitical conflicts further buoying political support for nuclear energy, industry demands for further assistance on the regulatory, fuel, domestic deployment and export fronts are all now on the table.
