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)
