About TerraPower

TerraPower® is a nuclear energy technology company based in Bellevue, Washington.

At our core, we are working to raise living standards globally. The essential factor? Energy.

In 2006, Bill Gates and a group of like-minded visionaries decided that the private sector needed to take action. They believed that business interests could develop a scalable, sustainable, low-carbon and cost-competitive energy source that would allow all nations to quicken their pace of economic development and reduce poverty.

TerraPower’s goal is to provide the world with a more affordable, secure and environmentally friendly form of nuclear energy.

Since 2008, TerraPower has been bringing together the strengths and experiences of the world’s public- and private-nuclear energy sectors. With deep technical knowledge and commercial experience, TerraPower set out to develop a new nuclear technology called the traveling wave reactor (TWR).

Mission-driven innovation has distinguished TerraPower from other nuclear energy endeavors. TerraPower’s unique approach will greatly simplify the current nuclear energy supply chain and significantly mitigate many of the shortcomings of today’s nuclear energy technologies.
