Plug in to Idaho.
Idaho’s citizens and businesses benefit from stable and secure access to affordable, clean forms of energy while the state continues to lead the nation in nuclear research.
Idaho National Laboratory
Home to the Idaho National Laboratory, designated by the Department of Energy as the nation’s lead nuclear research facility, Idaho researchers develop, test and demonstrate new fuels and materials, reactor systems, plant monitoring and safety systems, and waste management options.
INL’s science-based approach to nuclear energy research yields technically achievable, economically competitive and environmentally sustainable options for the entire nuclear energy enterprise in areas including:
- Advanced Nuclear Fuels
- Nuclear Reactor Systems
- Safety and Risk Assessment
- Materials Management
- Space Power Systems
Additionally, the Center for Advanced Energy Studies is a research and education consortium led by the INL with member institutions Boise State University, Idaho State University, University of Idaho and University of Wyoming who are on a mission to promote the effective and efficient use of energy resources through cutting-edge research, effective outreach and accessible education.
Idaho views affordable and reliable energy resources as a competitive advantage for Idaho businesses and as a priority for Idaho government. To emphasize this resource, former Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter created the Leadership in Nuclear Energy Commission.
The LINE Commission makes recommendations to the Governor on policies and actions of the State of Idaho to support and enhance the long-term viability and mission of the Idaho National Laboratory and other nuclear industries in Idaho.
