1 Office of Nuclear Energy 1May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Office of Nuclear Energy Program Perspective Delivering Nuclear Solutions for America's Energy Challenges Mary McCune Deputy Director, Office of Facilities Management (NE-31)

2 Office of Nuclear Energy 2May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Office of Nuclear Energy  Mission: To advance nuclear power as a resource capable of making major contributions in meeting the nation’s energy supply, environmental, and energy security needs  Idaho National Laboratory 60 yr history in reactor and fuel-cycle technology research, development, and demonstration Majority of the DOE infrastructure for nuclear energy development Multi-program laboratory National and Homeland Security Energy development Environmental stewardship

3 Office of Nuclear Energy 3May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Lead Program Secretarial Office for the Idaho National Laboratory NE Real Property Replacement Plant Value: $7.1 billion 996 assets 6.4 million ft 2 Asset Condition Index continues to improve Non-NE Activities Environmental Management Naval Reactors

4 Office of Nuclear Energy 4May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Idaho National Laboratory Core Capabilities  Irradiation  Post-Irradiation Examination and Fresh Fuel Characterization  Experimental Fuel Fabrication  Advanced Separations and Waste Forms  Specialized Laboratory Facilities The Advanced Test Reactor

5 Office of Nuclear Energy 5May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Program Secretarial Office Responsibilities – No Budget Paducah Gaseous Diffusion PlantPortsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant …USEC facilities at Portsmouth & Paducah Sites which are outgranted

6 Office of Nuclear Energy 6May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Sustainability Accomplishments/Progress  LEED Gold certification for new construction and targeted new lease facilities Radiological and Sciences Laboratory Center for Advanced Energy Studies Energy Sciences Laboratory Irradiated Materials Characterization Laboratory – certification pending Research Education Laboratory – under construction  Installation of over 100,000 ft 2 cool roofs utilizing NNSA Roof Asset Management Program  Completion of Materials and Fuels Complex Energy Saving Performance Contract that will provide overall energy reductions for the Idaho National Laboratory site of 5%  Significant reduction in petroleum fuel consumption with corresponding increase in alternative fuel use Energy Systems Laboratory

7 Office of Nuclear Energy 7May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Maintaining Idaho National Laboratory Infrastructure  Infrastructure investment strategy tiers from gaps identified in the Office of Nuclear Energy Roadmap  Investments are identified through Infrastructure Plans  Investment focus on enhancing, revitalizing and sustaining core capabilities  Multi-faceted investment strategy Idaho Facilities Management – provide critical infrastructure, unique capabilities, and highly trained workforce Program-specific investments – enhance/establish capabilities Idaho National Laboratory Strategic Investments – mission critical and support infrastructure investments Work for Others –other organizations use and support our infrastructure Partnership with Naval Reactors on Advanced Test Reactor

8 Office of Nuclear Energy 8May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Recent Investments Materials and Fuels Complex Dial Room Final Connections Irradiated Materials Characterization Laboratory Irradiation Assisted Stress Corrosion Cracking Hot Cells

9 Office of Nuclear Energy 9May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Establishing Replacement Capabilities  Remote-Handled Low-Level Waste Disposal Facility  Replaces current disposal operations at the Radioactive Waste Management Complex scheduled to close within 10 years

10 Office of Nuclear Energy 10May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Strategic Leases to Advance Research, Development, and Demonstration Research Education Lab Energy Systems Lab Process Demonstration Unit

11 Office of Nuclear Energy 11May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Nuclear Material Management Material Security and Consolidation Facility Assembly of Transuranic Surveillance Gloveboxes

12 Office of Nuclear Energy 12May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop  Reviewing alternatives for the resumption of transient testing Resumption of operations at the Transient Reactor Test Facility at the Idaho National Laboratory Installation of new hot cell and hodoscope in the Annular Core Research Reactor at Sandia National Laboratories No action  Completion of an Environmental Assessment and the selection of a preferred alternative are expected in 2013  Transient testing capability is needed by 2018 to support Accident Tolerant Fuels program Reestablishing Capabilities-Transient Testing Annular Core Research Reactor TREAT core

13 Office of Nuclear Energy 13May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Challenges  Funding Fiscally constrained budgets  Maintaining Aging Core Nuclear Infrastructure  Integration of Infrastructure-related Activities Across 3 organizations which are all facing budget pressure to assure that nothing falls off the table  Sustainability Challenges Fuel/Fleet Reduction: Remote location – drives up costs, requires bus fleet to transport workers Energy/Water Intensity: no further opportunities at current time due to extremely low energy/water costs.  Unfunded Liability At Y-12 facility, the Beta-3 Calutron Facility is part of the proposed Manhattan Project National Park

14 Office of Nuclear Energy 14May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Strategies to Meet Challenges  Good Working Relationships  Collaborate with Naval Reactors and Environmental Management in areas of common needs and interests  Leveraging Investments  Meet sustainability goals by more fully integrating energy efficient maintenance investments  Maintain, revitalize and sustain existing infrastructure and capabilities, and where gaps exist, provide direct programmatic funds for research and development activities at other sites  Improve relevant university and college infrastructures for conducting nuclear energy related research and development  Support collaboration through the Advanced Test Reactor National Scientific User Facility to facilitate the prospect of advancements in basic and applied nuclear research and development

15 Office of Nuclear Energy 15May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Best Practices  Idaho National Laboratory Ten Year Site Plan – last year’s plan rated excellent  IMAP – Quoted as a best practice in the implementation report for EO Improving Performance of Federal Permitting and Review of Infrastructure Projects

16 Office of Nuclear Energy 16May 20, 2013 Property Management Workshop Summary  Provide infrastructure investments that will meet the needs of and provide the best return to the Nuclear Energy program  Provide continued availability of unique nuclear Research and Development capabilities and infrastructure  Continue to pursue a range of approaches to enable the Nuclear Energy mission
