Wyoming is pinning its hopes for the future on a new era of energy technologies — but is not giving up on the industries that sustain it today.
The state will work with the Idaho National Laboratory to advance low-carbon energy technologies, including next-generation nuclear and clean hydrogen.
According to researchers from the Idaho National Laboratory, Wyoming has the potential to continue attracting advanced nuclear developers and establish itself as a leader in the industry, but needs to be proactive in order to succeed.
The Wyoming senator's latest uranium bill aims to establish a U.S. supply chain of a fuel only produced commercially in Russia.
With Russian uranium no longer an option, the company planning to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming by 2028 hopes a U.S. fuel source becomes available in time.
TerraPower, the nuclear developer planning to build a $4 billion demonstration reactor in southwestern Wyoming, will partner with Japan’s nuclear industry to advance the technology.
With Kemmerer chosen as the site of TerraPower's next-generation nuclear reactor, things will move quickly — at least as nuclear projects go. But compared with the fanfare that surrounded this year’s two big announcements, 2022 is looking like a quieter year for Natrium.
Wyoming committed this summer to an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy that embraces clean energy without excluding coal, oil or natural gas.
The report found advanced nuclear projects like Wyoming’s Natrium plant could prove cheaper, more flexible and more efficient than traditional nuclear reactors.
In the four months since TerraPower and Rocky Mountain Power announced plans to build an advanced nuclear facility at a retiring Wyoming coal plant, the state has emerged as an early industry leader.
The small modular nuclear reactor coming to Wyoming has hit a regulatory snag: Technically, under state law, it isn’t one.
