National Energy Policy Forum

A National Energy Policy Forum on “Perspectives from the Democratic and Republican Presidential Candidates’ Campaigns” was hosted by the Washington, D.C. Section of the American Nuclear Society on September 18, 2008, at Positano Ristorante Italiano in Bethesda, Maryland. Co-hosts for the evening included the Baltimore-Washington Chapter of the Health Physics Society, Nuclear Energy Institute, North American Young Generation in Nuclear, U.S. Women in Nuclear, and the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Chapter. Financial support for the Forum was provided by a number of local organizations, including EnergySolutions, Entergy, EXCEL, MNES, NEI, Northrop Grumman, Babcock & Wilcox, and Numark Associates, Inc.

The event was attended by more than 160 nuclear professionals with a broad range of interests in nuclear science and technology. After presentations by the two campaign representatives, the moderator posed questions to the speakers based on written questions from the audience. These questions covered a wide range of subjects including the issues of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing, Yucca Mountain, interim storage at reactor sites vs. a repository, new reactor construction, workforce and national fabrication facility limitations, DOE laboratory closings, and research for nuclear technologies.

Because of the nature of the Forum, the Washington D.C. area is an ideal location to hold such events, and it is hoped that some feedback from the various questions will be taken back to the candidates for their consideration.
