January  2019 ANS-SR/CNTA Technical Meeting

The American Nuclear Society and Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness will jointly host a Meet-Greet-Network Event and Technical Presentation on January 17, 2019, at Newberry Hall. Our featured speaker for the evening is ​Dr. ​John E. Kelly, President of the American Nuclear Society, 2018-2019.
Date:  Thursday, January 17th 

Schedule:  6:00 PM - Registration Meet & Greet with Heavy Hors d'oeuvres; 7:30 PM - Announcements and Technical Program
Location:  Newberry Hall, 117 Newberry Street SW, Aiken, SC 29801
Presentation:  ​"​Perspectives on the Future of Nuclear Power in the United States​"​
Presentation ​Summary:  Currently there are dozens of Light Water Reactors (LWRs) under construction around the world.  Most experts expect LWR technology to be the primary source of nuclear power well into the latter half of this century.  At the same time there continues to be strong interest in moving to more advanced LWR technology (such as Small Modular Reactors) and Generation IV systems.  The presentation will provide perspectives on the future of nuclear power in the United States and how the integration of LWR technology and Gen IV technology can lead to sustainable nuclear power.

Speaker:  Dr. John E. Kelly recently retired from the U.S. Department of Energy where he was the Chief Technology Officer in the Office of Nuclear Energy. He was responsible establishing the strategic technical direction for the Office of Nuclear Energy’s (NE's) research, development, demonstration, and deployment portfolios. Prior to assuming the duties of Chief Technology Officer, he served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Reactor Technologies.  His office was responsible for the civilian nuclear reactor research and development portfolio, which included programs on Small Modular Reactors, Light Water Reactors, and Generation IV reactors.  Additional responsibilities included the design, development, and production of radioisotope power systems, principally for NASA missions.  

In the international arena, Dr. Kelly chaired the Generation IV International Forum and former chair of the International Atomic Energy Agency's Standing Advisory Group on Nuclear Energy.  Prior to joining the Department of Energy in 2010, Dr. Kelly spent 30 years at Sandia National Laboratories, where he was engaged in a broad spectrum of research programs in nuclear reactor safety, advanced nuclear energy technology, and national security.  Dr. Kelly received his B.S. in nuclear engineering from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and his Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
