by Kristi Marvin on 2023-10-20 at 8:06am

This week, we speak with J. Clay Sell, CEO of X-energy, which announced a $1.18 billion combination with Ares Acquisition Corporation (NYSE: AAC) in December 2022.

Wind and solar have each seen big booms in adoption in the 21st century due to a mix of technology and incentives aligning at the same time. Could it once again be nuclear power’s turn?

Clay tells us how innovative smaller-reactor designs can carve out a new place in the energy mix for utilities and industrial clients alike. And, how X-energy’s focus on proprietary nuclear fuel has brought a new business model to the space.

Give it a listen
