The Idaho National Laboratory will hold a public meeting for Treasure Valley residents to learn more about the future of nuclear energy, according to a press release.

The meeting and panel discussion will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Boise State University Alumni and Friends Center, 1173 University Drive in Boise.

Building on an effort launched in 2019, the INL is holding a series of community discussions to answer the public’s questions.

“Carbon-free nuclear power is an important part of the world’s clean energy future, and INL is at the center of advanced nuclear research,” the press release said. “Come learn about the projects we’re working on, how we collaborate with industry and communities, and what nuclear can do besides make electricity.”
