A wide range of new technologies are moving from the research and development stage to the deployment stage that can have a potential impact on energy planning, reliability as well as economic development and environmental compliance.  One such area of emerging technology includes both the new nuclear reactor designs recently approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and small modular reactors (nuclear reactors with an electricity output of less than 300 MW). What does the emergence of these new energy options mean for state legislators and where can we go from here? 

Speakers
David Matthews, Director of the Division of New Reactor Licensing, Office of New Reactors, Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Dr. Kathyrn J. Jackson, Senior Vice Presdient and Chief Technology Officer, Westinghouse Electric Company
