NANO Nuclear Energy Chief Executive Officer to Present Before New Hampshire Commission Investigating the Implementation of Next Generation Nuclear Reactor Technology in the State

New Hampshire is investigating the potential for micro nuclear reactors like NANO Nuclear’s ‘ZEUS’ and ‘ODIN’


NANO Nuclear Energy Inc. (“NANO Nuclear”), an emerging microreactor and advanced nuclear technology company led by a world-class nuclear engineering team developing proprietary, portable and carbon free energy solutions, is pleased to announce that Chief Executive Officer James Walker will provide counsel and testimony on November 6th, 2023 alongside fellow experts in the field for New Hampshire’s Commission To Investigate The Implementation Of Next Generation Nuclear Reactor Technology on the state-wide implementation of new-generation technologies, including “Generation IV” reactors.

“New Hampshire has a plethora of experience with nuclear energy, but I would like to thank NANO Nuclear and Mr. Walker for contributing to our inquiry into advanced nuclear technologies, including Generation IV reactors and microreactors,” said Rep. Keith Ammon, New Hampshire State Representative and Chair, Nuclear Technology Study Commission. “While the State has historically concentrated its efforts on renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, we recognize the significant strides being made with the advanced nuclear technologies. The commission anticipates that the insights gained from Mr. Walker’s expertise, as well as our own evaluations of the ‘ZEUS’ and ‘ODIN’ microreactors, will better inform and refine New Hampshire’s strategy for attaining energy sustainability and sovereignty, as well as define the role microreactors can play in the coming years.”

Established under HB543, a bill sponsored by New Hampshire State Representatives including Rep. Keith Ammon (R-New Boston), the commission is tasked with assessing developments in nuclear energy technology, notably Generation IV reactors. Its focus encompasses small-scale, modular designs such as Gas-cooled Fast Reactors (GFR) and Molten Salt Reactors (MSR), including the NANO Nuclear’s ‘ZEUS’ and ‘ODIN’ reactors. Through research and consultation with field experts, the commission will investigate advances in nuclear technology, including generation IV reactor designs, safety, fuel consumption, non-electric applications of new designs, site options and partnership possibilities.

“At the start of this year, we were encouraged by the Federal government’s commitment to advancing the domestic nuclear energy sector,” said James Walker, Chief Executive Officer of NANO Nuclear Energy. “Now, states like New Hampshire are revisiting the potential of nuclear power for long-term energy solutions, and it is a pleasure to see the momentum growing beyond Federal proposals. I am delighted to provide a reference for the commissions’ recommendations and aim to foster a mutually beneficial, long-term collaboration.” 

“I would like to thank Representative Ammon for the opportunity to help educate the public on the reality behind nuclear energy,” said Jay Jiang Yu, Founder & Executive Chairman of NANO Nuclear Energy. “It is time to move past the stigmas of the past when it comes to nuclear energy, and I applaud New Hampshire for taking a proactive stance in investigating our novel nuclear technologies.”
