Introduction

The Nuclear Energy Tribal Working Group (NETWG) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) chartered working group, focused on engaging tribal governments interested in the broad spectrum of Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) activities. 

NETWG explores such topics as nuclear research and development, small modular reactors, cultural resource impacts of DOE-NE activities related to nuclear energy production and distribution along with siting of facilities and waste. The group also engages in emergency response and planning activities.

Since 2014, NCSL has provided staff support to NETWG through a cooperative agreement with DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE).
