Support American Innovation with the AEIA!

What is the American Energy Innovation Act (AEIA)? It’s a bipartisan bill that’s been introduced in the Senate, and to date more than 60 senators have signed on in support.

What does it do?

  • Establishes an advanced nuclear research, development, and demonstration moonshot

focused on bringing two new American reactor concepts to the commercial marketplace

by 2025 and another cutting-edge design by 2035. This focus on demonstrations is

essential for our national security as China now has 48 operating reactors, and is

currently constructing 10 new reactors.

  • Advances efforts to develop a domestic source of new nuclear fuels, including High

Assay Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU), needed to power the next generation of

American advanced nuclear technologies.

  • Supports the U.S. Department of Energy’s Versatile Test Reactor program, a research

capability currently only present in Russia, which is needed to accelerate the

development of new materials and fuels for advanced reactors.
