Nuclear Hybrid Energy Systems

The Nuclear Hybrid Energy Systems CORE advances clean energy objectives through novel analysis and technologies that broaden the application of nuclear energy.

Integrating nuclear power with other energy conversion processes enables:

  • Efficient, stable deployment of renewable energy
  • Improved carbon usage during conversion of fossil and biomass into transportation fuels
  • Deployment of nuclear energy beyond baseload electricity generation
  • System flexibility to accommodate long-term transitions in energy consumption (e.g. from liquid hydrocarbons to electricity from transportation)
