Press release date: May 22, 2012

The Nuclear Energy Standards Coordination Collaborative (NESCC) - a joint initiative of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) - will hold its next meeting on July 17, 2012. Open to all interested stakeholders, NESCC meetings focus on identifying and responding to the current needs of the nuclear industry, and the standards that can facilitate its growth and development.

To be held at ANSI headquarters in Washington, DC, the July 17 NESCC meeting is open to all interested U.S. and international stakeholders, including government legislative and regulatory bodies, industry, standards developing organizations, and certification organizations.

The Nation's Nuclear Need

The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) estimates that the nation's electricity demand will rise 24 percent by 2035, creating an increased need for clean, emission-free energy. In the push for building America's clean energy future, the NESCC works to identify the standards needed for the design, operation, development, licensing, and deployment of nuclear power plants and other nuclear technologies.

The nuclear energy industry can also play an important role in job creation and economic growth. According to the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), the 104 nuclear units in the U.S. generate substantial domestic economic value in electricity sales and revenue - $40 to $50 billion each year - with more than 100,000 workers contributing to production.

Visit the event webpage for more information; the meeting agenda will be provided as soon as it is available. Attendance is free of charge, but due to space limitations advance registration is required for both in-person and teleconference participants.
