Presentation Title: The Role of Nuclear Energy in Achieving Economy-Wide Net Zero Energy Solutions

Presenter:  Shannon M. Bragg-Sitton, Ph.D., Director, Integrated Energy & Storage Systems, Idaho National Laboratory

Abstract: The Biden administration has committed to full decarbonization of the U.S. electricity grid by 2035 and economy-wide net zero emissions by 2050. These aggressive goals demand immediate action, and they require us to think more holistically about our clean energy options. The DOE Office of Nuclear Energy Integrated Energy Systems (IES) program is addressing these holistic solutions. Reducing environmental emissions at an affordable cost, while maintaining grid reliability and resilience, will require us to use all of the clean energy resources that we have available. That means coordinating the use of nuclear, renewables, and fossil fuels with carbon capture to meet growing demands for electricity, industrial applications, and mobility. The primary focus of IES research is to assess the technical and economic potential of potential energy system solutions to enhance the flexibility and utilization of nuclear reactors working alongside renewable generators to meet an array of energy demands—thereby maximizing the utilization of clean energy resources across all energy sectors.

Presentation Title: Raising Awareness of Carbon-Free Nuclear Energy For Mining Applications

Presenter: Scott Melbye, Executive Vice President – Uranium Energy Corp, CEO – Uranium Royalty Corp., and President – Uranium Producers of America

Abstract: Global climate change concerns are hurtling society towards a low/no carbon future at a pace which is straining mankind’s scientific abilities to meet those goals. Nowhere is this challenge more evident than in the global mining industry whose companies are embracing aggressive carbon reduction goals as part of their overall Environment and Social Governance (ESG) commitments to investors and local stakeholders. Mining, especially conventional open pit and underground operations, and
associated metallurgical milling processes, are, by their very nature, energy intensive. The challenges are both substantial and costly. As someone who has spent the past 37 years in both nuclear energy and uranium mining, I not only see the immense challenges presented, but also a very key and viable solution in the form of small modular and micro nuclear reactors which produce reliable (24/7) electricity without carbon emissions. The dramatic changes in public and political perceptions toward
nuclear energy in a lower carbon world, and advances in small modular and advanced reactors, present new options in the tool box for global miners and developers compared to even just a few years ago. My goal is to see these two worlds come together and gain a mutual appreciation of the challenges and opportunities that may foster, and promote, future cooperation.

About Scott Melbye: Scott Melbye is Executive Vice President of Texas-based miner and developer, Uranium Energy Corp, and is currently President of the Uranium Producers of America. He is also CEO and co-founder of Uranium Royalty Corp, which is the only pure-play royalty and streaming company in the uranium industry.
