The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today awarded $22.1 million to 10 industry-led projects, including two aimed at expanding clean hydrogen production with nuclear energy. The other projects include efforts to bring a microreactor design closer to deployment, tackle nuclear regulatory hurdles, improve operations of existing reactors, and facilitate new advanced reactor developments. Each of these projects will help advance nuclear technology and ensure nuclear power continues to play a crucial role in meeting President Biden's emissions-reduction and climate change goals.
This funding opportunity is administered by DOE's Office of Nuclear Energy (NE). In collaboration with NE, DOE's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office will provide funding and project oversight for hydrogen production–related projects that were selected.
