The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) conducts research, development, and demonstration projects for the benefit of the public in the United States and internationally. As an independent, nonprofit organization for public interest energy and environmental research, we focus on electricity generation, delivery, and use in collaboration with the electricity sector, its stakeholders and others to enhance the quality of life by making electric power safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible.
The Nuclear Sector at EPRI conducts research supporting the safe, reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible use of nuclear power as a generation option. Through global collaboration with nuclear power plant operators, vendors, regulatory agencies, and other research organizations, EPRI develops cost-effective technologies, technical guidance, and knowledge transfer tools that help maximize the value of existing nuclear assets and inform the deployment of new technology.
The International Atomic Energy Agency is the world’s central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical co-operation in the nuclear field. It works for the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, contributing to international peace and security and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) is grounded in robust science and the understanding from decades of industry experience. NNL is the authoritative voice in Britain and beyond for technological development and innovation in civil nuclear power.
Our unparalleled understanding of the nuclear science, challenges and opportunities makes us an unrivalled authority and partner in the ﬁeld, providing experts, innovative technologies, and access to cutting-edge facilities to organisations in the UK and globally.
Our workforce has a collective 10,000 years of industry experience including dozens of recognised subject matter experts. Through our strategic collaborations with the best in the world – in industry and academia – we harness potential technologies and translate them into industry-ready solutions. This pioneering approach enables us to spearhead international improvement and technological progress.
We deliver a vast range of projects – from drilling holes to analyse underground wastes with our integrated micro-drilling technology, through adapting robots used in the automotive sector for use in treating radioactive waste, all the way to developing state-of-the-art power systems for spacecraft, based on radioactive materials.
Our unique model of commercial operation under Government ownership brings the best of both worlds and puts NNL squarely at the heart of the clean energy agenda.
The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is an intergovernmental agency which operates within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). NEA membership consists of 33 countries representing 82% of the world’s installed nuclear electricity generating capacity. The mission of the NEA is to assist its member countries in maintaining and further developing, through international co-operation, the scientific, technological and legal bases required for a safe, environmentally sound and economical use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. It strives to provide authoritative assessments and to forge common understandings on key issues as input to government decisions on nuclear energy policy and to broader OECD analyses in areas such as energy and the sustainable development of low carbon economies. The information, data and analyses it provides draw on one of the best international networks of technical experts.
As the UK’s largest generator of low-carbon electricity we are proud to join you in creating a cleaner, low-carbon future. Countries using renewable technologies, such as wind and solar, alongside low-carbon nuclear have successfully cut their emissions. We’re committed to investing in them all.
Around a fifth of the UK’s electricity is generated by our eight nuclear power stations, helping power our customer’s homes and businesses. We’re investing in reliable low-carbon nuclear, alongside wind and solar power, to create a balanced energy mix and cut out polluting coal and gas.
We’re applying new technologies and ways of working to help build a brighter energy future for the UK. Our programmes focus on coupling advances in science and engineering with new digital innovations.
Our cutting-edge technologies will accelerate the transition to a sustainable future.
