W18 The Evolution of the U.S. Electric Grid: Implications for Nuclear Technology

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation

The energy sector is rapidly evolving. Traditional paradigms for reducing energy losses, improving the utilization of capital equipment and infrastructure, and maintaining grid resilience are adapting as diverse energy generation technologies are deployed. This session will feature presenters from the forefront of energy systems integration research, regulation, and operations. The implications of new and distributed advanced nuclear deployment, alternative loading of nuclear energy on the grid, and operating plant retirements will be discussed.
