The Atlantic Council— in partnership with the Idaho National Laboratory and the University of Alaska Anchorage, Business Enterprise Institute—is pleased to host the Frontiers Project Meeting on Monday, September 16th, 8:00 AM – 6:30 PM AKDT – Tuesday, September 17th, 8:00 AM – 11:30 AM AKDT. This event will take place at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center (600 W 7th Avenue, Anchorage).

This event serves as an update to the October 2023 Frontiers Project Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, which addressed the economic and energy security imperatives of establishing US leadership in meeting global demand for low-emissions production and manufacturing. 

The Frontiers Project efforts are dedicated to catalyze industry, academic, and government partnerships to expand economic production for advanced nuclear energy first-mover states and help secure United States leadership in the new frontier of global economic competition.

Alaska has a unique role to play as a first-mover state in advanced nuclear technologies, which are a crucial tool in meeting global demand for low-emissions production. This discussion will explore considerations in the current nuclear landscape, emerging technologies, and the potential of advanced nuclear applications across Alaska markets.  



The Global Energy Center develops and promotes pragmatic and nonpartisan policy solutions designed to advance global energy security, enhance economic opportunity, and accelerate pathways to net-zero emissions.
