"LPO can finance innovative projects across the advanced nuclear supply chain, including leveraging new authority Congress provided in the Energy Act of 2020 to add nuclear supply component projects to the existing nuclear facilities category."

The latest entry in LPO's Tech Talk blog series ( focuses on Advanced Nuclear, which is poised to become an increasingly important source of safe, reliable, and flexible baseload power as the nation decarbonizes its energy systems.

And with the future of nuclear energy likely geared toward small modular reactors (SMRs) and the supply chains needed to build them, LPO now has new tools available to support those projects and others that may include, but are not limited to:

• Front end nuclear fuel cycle
• Advanced nuclear reactors
• Uprates and upgrades
• Advanced nuclear component manufacturing
• Clean hydrogen via electrolysis powered by nuclear energy
• Asset and infrastructure conversion


• Find out how LPO is helping to commercialize the next generation of nuclear energy—including SMRs—through its Title 17 Innovative Clean Energy Loan Guarantee Program:

• Read about the Title 17 Energy Infrastructure Reinvestment (EIR) Program, which can be used to leverage existing equipment, grid connections, and land to convert retiring fossil fuel assets to nuclear power plants:

New Nuclear is still full of promises yet we have tons of spent nuclear waste at all the existing nuclear sites around the world. That waste is radio active and deadly. It can be weapons grade material. 

   Nuclear still requires a lot of water. It needs uranium that needs to be processed into yellow cake for the fuel in the plant.
