This week, Secretary Ernest Moniz experienced the 3-D visualizations at the <a href="/articles/five-years-building-next-generation-reactors-0" target="_blank">Consortium for the Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL)</a>, one of the Department's Energy Innovation Hubs. The facility, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, develops computer models that simulate nuclear power plant operations. The researchers at CASL are developing technology that could accelerate upgrades at existing nuclear plants while improving the plants' reliability and safety. <a href="/articles/secretary-moniz-visits-oak-ridge-national-laboratory" target="_blank">Check out more photos from Secretary Moniz's visit to CASL.</a> | Photo courtesy of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
