Dear Chairman Alexander, Ranking Member Feinstein, Chairwoman Kaptur and Ranking Member Simpson,
Stephen Eule

The good news on energy just keeps on coming.

About a month ago we told you about the latest forecast from the Energy Information Administration showing U.S. crude oil production reaching new heights in the coming years.


NuScale has designed a small modular nuclear reactor (SMR) that has a simplified design making it safe, scalable and cost efficient all while meeting expanding energy needs. Their reactor has a wide range of applications – it can desalinate water, support renewables resources, provide highly reliable power or serve as emissions-free baseload power. This technology has global ramifications; specifically, the potential to provide clean water and electricity, reliably and affordably, for those who need it.

The latest installment in our EnergyInnovates series takes us to Corvallis, Oregon, home to NuScale, a company that is changing the way we think about nuclear energy. 

Nuclear energy is America’s largest source of emissions-free power.  NuScale has developed a smaller, more mobile nuclear reactor which can be deployed quickly and cost-effectively (called a Small Modular Reactor, or SMR).
