NRC and FERC Commissioners to Discuss Grid Reliability, Reactor Issues

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will
hold a joint meeting Sept. 25 at NRC headquarters in Rockville, Md.

The meeting, which will begin at 9 a.m. and end at approximately 11:15 a.m., will be held in
the NRC’s Commission Hearing Room at 11555 Rockville Pike in Rockville. Staff members from
both agencies and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation will brief NRC and FERC
Commissioners on topics that include grid reliability, energy storage, operating reactor issues, new
reactor construction oversight, reactor decommissioning, small modular and advanced reactor
activities, and cybersecurity.

The NRC encourages those planning to attend to allow enough time for security screening in
advance of the meeting at the NRC’s One White Flint North entrance, at the corner of Rockville Pike
and Marinelli Road. The NRC is located across the street from the White Flint Metro station. The
NRC will webcast the meeting.

Media Notes: Media are asked to call the NRC Office of Public Affairs at 301-415-8200 in
advance to provide the names of those who will attend the meeting to assure sufficient seating. Seats
on one side of the Commission hearing room will be reserved for accredited members of the media.
Photographers will have limited space at the meeting in which to take photos. Movement must be
kept to a minimum to limit distractions and entry into the inner well closest to the Commission
briefing table will be prohibited.
