"This agreement comes at a key time for the United States, France and the world," said Secretary Chu. "It reflects our shared commitment to working together on civil nuclear and renewable energy technologies as key drivers in the global clean energy economy.”
This agreement builds on a decade of cooperation between the two countries under the DOE-CEA Agreement for Cooperation in Advanced Nuclear Reactor Science and Technology on both the nuclear fuel cycle and advanced reactor research. The new agreement recognizes CEA’s broadened focus and additional opportunities for the U.S. and France to work together on energy efficiency and cost-competitiveness across the energy mix, benefiting both countries.
