DOE funding for small reactors languishes as parties clash on debt
Greenwire reports that the Department of Energy has blown its deadline to award $452M to one or two SMR firms over five years. The first award of approximately $60M had to be announced by the end of the fiscal year which is Sunday 9/30. Friday was the last working day of the fiscal year. According to Greenwire, DOE did not make a decision due to election year indecision by the Obama White House.
