Nuclear Innovation: Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) is an international initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial. Led by the United States, Canada and Japan, other participating countries include Argentina, Poland, Romania, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
The initiative encourages the inclusion of nuclear energy in clean energy conversations and engages diverse stakeholders to focus on full-scale nuclear for baseload electricity, next-generation technologies, and integrated renewable-nuclear energy systems. NICE Future works across four key areas:
- Technology evaluations of innovative energy systems and uses;
- Engagement of policy makers and stakeholders in future energy choices;
- Valuation, market structure, and ability to finance;
- And communicating nuclear energy’s role in clean, integrated energy systems.
