Texas Advanced Nuclear Reactor Working Group


The Texas Advanced Nuclear Reactor Working Group was established August 16, 2023, at the direction of Governor Greg Abbott and operates under the leadership of Public Utility Commission of Texas Commissioner Jimmy Glotfelty.

The Working Group is evaluating how advanced nuclear reactors can provide safe, reliable, and affordable power for Texas and how to make the state a national leader in the deployment of nuclear power. Areas of study include financial incentives, state and federal regulatory impediments to growth, Texas electric market impacts, technical challenges, and additional factors necessary to foster growth of nuclear energy in Texas.

The Working Group must report its findings and recommendations to Gov. Abbott by December 1, 2024.

To learn more about the working group and nuclear energy in Texas, see this Frequently Asked Questions resource.
