The Nuclear Energy Institute is seeking to "create a new regulatory paradigm for small reactors," which includes addressing decommissioning expenses, yearly fees and engaging the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in discussions on how to properly regulate such designs, said Paul Genoa, director of policy development at NEI.
