For the May 14, 2019 DC ANS dinner meeting, Marilyn Kray, Vice President, Nuclear Technology & Strategy for Exelon Corporation, will be speaking on:

“Preserving and Growing the US Nuclear Power Industry

She will provide an overview of the US nuclear industry ranging from preserving our existing plants to the transition to light-water SMRs and advanced reactors.  She will also discuss the ongoing activities within ANS to support this transition as well as revisit its internal practices to similarly help ensure the successful existence of the Society.

Ms. Kray is responsible for leading major initiatives related to current and advanced reactor designs to create growth opportunities that leverage Exelon’s nuclear operations competency.  These initiatives include potential acquisition of existing plants, pursuing operational service agreements both domestically and internationally, as well as engaging with advanced reactor developers in order to evaluate potential business opportunities and future deployment of the technology.

Throughout her career Marilyn has served in leadership roles as Exelon’s representative to the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).  She is currently the Vice President, President-Elect for the American Nuclear Society.  Marilyn is the 2005 recipient of the World Nuclear Association (WNA) award for Distinguished Contribution to the Peaceful Use of Nuclear Technology. In 2007 she received the American Nuclear Society’s Utility Leadership Award.  Under Kray’s leadership, the NuStart organization was one of four finalists for the 2012 Edison Award.

Ms. Kray is a graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering.
