Department of Energy Training
DOE's Nuclear Energy (NE) program promotes secure, competitive and environmentally responsible nuclear technologies to serve the present and future energy needs of the United States and the world. With the significant energy and environmental challenges facing the nation in this new century, the benefits of clean and safe nuclear energy are increasingly apparent.
A key mission of DOE's nuclear energy research and development program is to strengthen that basic technology and, through some of the most advanced civilian technology research being conducted today, chart the way toward introduction of the next generation of nuclear power plants.
The Office of Nuclear Energy also has responsibilities for space and defense nuclear power systems, advanced nuclear research and development, isotope production and distribution, nuclear facilities management, and nuclear fuel security.
