​TerraPower finds unique value in the public-private partnerships offered by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). DOE’s national laboratories take on basic science issues that most private sector companies cannot afford to tackle, laying the foundation for knowledge that can be translated into commercial products. Its commitment to public-private partnerships allows companies like ours to connect archived research and test results with modern computing power, enabling the use of historic data in modeling and simulation to create advanced designs based on a solid scientific foundation. Just a few examples of these agreements in action:

Whether it is a public-private partnership or another link in our supply chain, each collaboration brings the world a little closer to a safe, economic and sustainable nuclear energy solution. In the process, we invest in the future of American innovation and bolster economic and energy security both in our own backyard and around the globe.
