Speaker:Bradley Williams, Senior Advisor, DOE Office of Nuclear Energy

Mr. Bradley Williams has been with the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy for the past nine years and currently serves as a Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy with responsibility for performing broad and extensive analysis and strategic planning

related to technical, economic, and policy aspects of nuclear energy.

Mr. Williams received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Mary Washington College and Master of Science degree in Physics from Virginia Tech where he researched solar neutrinos.

Topic: “Making Nuclear Cool Again: The Department of Energy’s Mission to Revitalize Nuclear Energy”

Nuclear energy is a strategic national asset for the United States and is an essential element of the Nation’s diverse energy portfolio required to sustain the U.S. economy and support our national goals. Nuclear energy reliably and economically contributes about 20 percent of the electricity generated in the U.S. and approximately 60 percent of the Nation’s clean energy. As a result of multiple factors, we are currently witnessing our domestic capability and once dominant global market share erode along with our manufacturing base. As the primary source of reliable, resilient and clean baseload electricity, the existing nuclear fleet must be maintained while affordable and innovative advanced nuclear technologies are developed and deployed. That’s why President Trump challenged the Department of Energy (DOE) to revive, revitalize and expand the U.S. nuclear energy sector. Realizing this challenge will strengthen the Nation’s domestic energy security and environmental sustainability, ensure national security and advance U.S. economic prosperity
