Over forty years of technical leadership: assuring our nation’s nuclear energy safety, security, safeguards, viability, and sustainability

Sandia ensures clean energy and environmental stability for national security by advancing nuclear energy. Nuclear energy will play a key role in a clean energy future for the nation, and help the nation achieve the goal of a decarbonized power sector by 2035. We lead in developing, integrating, and implementing technically safe, secure, viable, and sustainable solutions to nuclear energy challenges, ranging from power generation to the management of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. With this expertise, we impact decision making and analyze alternative strategies as a trusted agent of the Department of Energy (DOE).

With over forty years of continuous technical leadership addressing our nation’s nuclear energy challenges, Sandia is uniquely positioned to provide technical management, integration, and direction across the DOE complex for the nuclear fuel cycle. Sandia also provides a technical basis to inform policy development.
