In response, the Arctic program develops technologies that will ensure the sustainable and low-impact development of the North while also increasing the quality of life for Northerners through more reliable and relevant infrastructure.
By partnering with the northern shipping and mining industries, as well as with government regulators and operators, the program develops technologies that will result in safer and more efficient shipping operations in ice-covered waters.
May 4, 2017—As the debate begins on the administration’s budget proposal for fiscal 2018, NEI provided its perspective on what Congress should prioritize in the government’s nuclear energy programs. “While our reactor fleet relies on a focused, efficient, and technically expert NRC, we believe the agency’s regulatory regime needs to evolve,” Korsnick said.
House Appropriations Committee’s Energy and Water Development subcommittee May 3, NEI President and Chief Executive Officer Maria Korsnick emphasized the importance of improving efficiency at the U. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, dealing with used nuclear fuel and other top priorities.
