Purdue lecture series a joint presentation on nuclear energy

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University and Duke Energy recently announced a lecture series for the public to learn more about the developments being made in nuclear energy and small modular reactors.

An executive advisory committee had their first meeting regarding the “joint exploration between Purdue and Duke Energy into the feasibility of using advanced nuclear energy to meet the long-term energy needs of the West Lafayette campus.”

This committee will meet repeatedly over the course of the study to provide the university and Duke Energy guidance on safety, regulatory processes and research.

“I could not be more excited about both the quality of this stellar assemblage of scientific and technical talent and the plan for an open, comprehensive study process that helps further public understanding as it furthers our aim,” Mitch Daniels, president of Purdue University, said in the release.
