Idaho National Laboratory chosen to host 2021 nuclear technology summit – Date TBA – Sun Valley, Idaho
February 22, 2021 @ 8:00 am - February 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Idaho National Laboratory officials announced the lab will be hosting the United States Nuclear Industry Council’s 2021 Advanced Reactor Summit.
The summit will take place in Sun Valley. Those interested will be brought to Idaho Falls to tour INL. The purpose of these summits is to create solutions to improve both the cost and deployment time frames of advanced reactor technology. The summit brings together the most prominent members of the nuclear supply chain community, including utility movers, technology developers, construction engineers, manufacturers and service providers. The 2021 event will be the eighth annual summit of its kind.
Ward said the summit’s location will be part of the “Choose Idaho” campaign. While Lientz said the future “Choose Idaho” campaign is still in its conception phase, its intent will be to highlight the many benefits Idaho’s energy industry holds for businesses. According to Lientz, should INL receive even a fraction of the new projects it is anticipating, the lab will need more businesses and employees than ever to support those projects.
