“Our company is dedicated to bringing portable, nuclear microreactors to the marketplace within a decade both in the U.S. and ultimately worldwide. The timing of our joining the prestigious Nuclear Institute in the U.K. is perfect as we learn of breaking news from the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Dubai (COP 28) that more than 20 countries from four continents (including the United Kingdom) launched the Declaration to Triple Nuclear Energy by 2050.” Jay Jiang Yu, Founder, and Executive Chairman of NANO Nuclear. “The United Kingdom, with its rich history in nuclear energy, is also looking to the future and is actively upgrading its nuclear infrastructure with advanced technologies. Our association with the Nuclear Institute presents an invaluable opportunity to leverage these synergies to gain insights and expertise from a nation that is also a leader in nuclear energy innovation.”

“The Nuclear Institute is a well-recognized entity within our industry,” said Dr. Ian Farnan, Lead of Nuclear Fuel Cycle, Radiation and Materials of NANO Nuclear. “The organization has made significant contributions to maintain the United Kingdom's leading position in nuclear technology. We are delighted to become an official member and to participate in the upcoming Annual Dinner.”

The Nuclear Institute’s national network provides a place for the nuclear community to interact through events, its branch network, special interest groups and many volunteer-led activities. The organization represents over 3,500 professionals at all levels across the U.K. nuclear industry, from new build and operations to decommissioning. It also maintains the Nuclear Delta, the independently defined standard for nuclear professionalism.

The United Kingdom’s government has plans to expand nuclear energy capacity to 24 gigawatts by 2050. However, fourteen of the U.K.’s fifteen operating reactors are scheduled to be shut down by 2030. As such, the government plans to bring new plants online by 2025 as a way to offset the decommissioning of existing reactors. The U.K. government officially launched Great British Nuclear and established a competition to select the best SMR design from a series of companies.

“We are honored to join the Nuclear Institute, an esteemed advocate for the nuclear sciences," said James Walker, Chief Executive Officer of NANO Nuclear Energy. “There is a growing momentum in the industry on both sides of the Atlantic and this affiliation grants us access to an extensive network of respected professionals, providing opportunities for crucial collaborations, partnerships, and additional growth avenues abroad.”

“We are delighted to welcome NANO Nuclear Energy as a Corporate Affiliate of the Nuclear Institute,” Sarah Beacock, CEO of the Nuclear Institute, commented. “The growth of the nuclear sector in the U.K. will attract a wide range of forward-thinking companies from around the world of which NANO Nuclear is a valued contributor to the SMR revolution. We look forward to working with them as they establish themselves here and to supporting their staff development needs in the U.K.”
