X-energy is delivering the next generation of carbon-free energy by reinventing nuclear power. X-energy manufactures fuel that seals uranium particles in a protective coating, which makes meltdown impossible and retains the waste inside forever. We also design plants that unlock the fuel’s potential in a process that’s as clean as wind or solar. When combined, the result is reliable carbon-free baseload power, produced more safely and affordable than ever before and available anywhere, at any time.
