The EU contributed to its own energy crisis, but diversification can solve it

EnergySource by Ellen Wald

The EU's energy policies are partly responsible for the impact soaring gas prices are having across the bloc. But the EU still has an opportunity to readjust, find a way out of this crisis, and prevent future ones.

Nuclear power and the energy transition in non-OECD countries

EnergySource by Robert F. Ichord, Jr.

In non-OECD countries, nuclear power's role in immediate emissions reductions appears to be minimal, due to long lead times and other mitigating factors. But after 2030, rapid innovation could mean that nuclear energy will have a much more important part to play. OECD countries should partner with non-OECD countries to lay the groundwork now.

The VTR will play a key role in the nuclear energy innovation ecosystem

EnergySource by Suzanne Baker, Jennifer T. Gordon, Judi Greenwald, and Jackie Toth

Next-generation nuclear technologies hold the potential to bring US-led zero-carbon energy to international markets. But their development will be stymied without government support for the Versatile Test Reactor (VTR), whose budget was recently zeroed out. Congress still has opportunities to provide sufficient funding, and it must act on them.
