Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems

The INL is designated as the nation's lead laboratory for nuclear energy research and development because of its unique history, infrastructure and expertise.

The work at INL has improved medical care, strengthened national and homeland security, and helped the United States develop safe, reliable and affordable nuclear power that provides one-fifth of our electricity without generating greenhouse gasses.
