Press release date: February 15, 2012

The standards needed to facilitate the growth and development the U.S. nuclear industry will form the heart of discussions at the March 12 meeting of 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) to identify and respond to the current needs of the nuclear industry.

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 NESCC recently released a report assessing and coordinating the requirements for concrete used in nuclear power plants.

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.

To be held at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD, the March 12 NESCC meeting is open to all interested stakeholders, including government legislative and regulatory bodies, industry, standards developing organizations, certification organizations.

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