Introducing the New NEI.org

A couple of weeks back, we gave our readers a sneak preview of the home page to our new Web site, saying only that it would debut sometime in July. Well, sometime is finally here.

To get to the new site, just navigate to the place you've always gone before: http://www.nei.org.

But once you get there, things are going to look a little different. Besides a brand new design, we've also completely revamped our content and the way we organize it.

To start, we've organized our content by the Key Issues that are most important to our members:

Protecting The Environment

Reliable and Affordable Energy
New Nuclear Plants
Safety and Security
Nuclear Waste Disposal

Here's a screen shot from our New Nuclear Plants section:


Across the top nav bar, you'll find the following sections listed:

Public Policy
News and Events
Financial Center
Resources and Stats
Careers and Education
How it Works
About NEI

Here's our new Resources and Stats section, complete with brand new search engine:



Other important areas you should take a look at:

Conferences and Meetings
Industry Data
NEI Policy Positions
Graphics and Charts
Online Job Boards
Governance and Leadership

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who worked on the project here at NEI, as well as the team at Siteworx. It's great to finally see this go live.

So hop on in, kick the tires and tell us what you think.

The visual presentation is much better. However, I was somewhat disappointed in the way much of the data is presented. For instance, all of the information I tried to access in the Resources & Statistics section needed to download a xls or ppt file. I don't use Excel as my spreadsheet program and I don't have it on my computer. I also don't have Powerpoint on my computer. How do I access those .ppt files?

You really need to rethink this, in my opinion. I often provide links from nei.org to other bulletin board forums, and if the information is presented in a simple web page format, it makes things much easier. The New Nuclear Plant Status page is a xls download now. Please, this needs to be standard web page. Even the .pdf format is better than having to download .xls and .ppt files that I can't access anyway.

If you want to educate the general public on the advantages of nuclear power, the informational files need to be easy to access, not difficult. I know it is just a few extra keystrokes, but most people
aren't going to want to do that. There are also computer security
issues. I'm sure the NEI.org site is safe, but the general public may
not want to perform a special download just because of that concern.

I know the people at NEI have been working hard on this, and the
visual impact of the site is much better. I just think the technical
information needs to be easier to access. How do I read a ppt file if
I don't have powerpoint on my computer?

Making Clouds for a Living

Donell Banks works at Southern Nuclear’s Plant Vogtle units 3 and 4 as a shift supervisor in Operations, but is in the process of transitioning to his newly appointed role as the daily work controls manager. He has been in the nuclear energy industry for about 11 years.

I love what I do because I have the unique opportunity to help shape the direction and influence the culture for the future of nuclear power in the United States. Every single day presents a new challenge, but I wouldn't have it any other way. As a shift supervisor, I was primarily responsible for managing the development of procedures and programs to support operation of the first new nuclear units in the United States in more than 30 years. As the daily work controls manager, I will be responsible for oversight of the execution and scheduling of daily work to ensure organizational readiness to operate the new units.

I envision a nuclear energy industry that leverages the technology of today to improve efficiency…

Nuclear: Energy for All Political Seasons

The electoral college will soon confirm a surprise election result, Donald Trump. However, in the electricity world, there are fewer surprises – physics and economics will continue to apply, and Republicans and Democrats are going to find a lot to like about nuclear energy over the next four years.

In a Trump administration, the carbon conversation is going to be less prominent. But the nuclear value proposition is still there. We bring steady jobs to rural areas, including in the Rust Belt, which put Donald Trump in office. Nuclear plants keep the surrounding communities vibrant.

We hold down electricity costs for the whole economy. We provide energy diversity, reducing the risk of disruption. We are a critical part of America’s industrial infrastructure, and the importance of infrastructure is something that President-Elect Trump has stressed.

One of our infrastructure challenges is natural gas pipelines, which have gotten more congested as extremely low gas prices have pulled m…

Innovation Fuels the Nuclear Legacy: Southern Nuclear Employees Share Their Stories

Blake Bolt and Sharimar Colon are excited about nuclear energy. Each works at Southern Nuclear Co. and sees firsthand how their ingenuity powers the nation’s largest supply of clean energy. For Powered by Our People, they shared their stories of advocacy, innovation in the workplace and efforts to promote efficiency. Their passion for nuclear energy casts a bright future for the industry.

Blake Bolt has worked in the nuclear industry for six years and is currently the work week manager at Hatch Nuclear Plant in Georgia. He takes pride in an industry he might one day pass on to his children.

What is your job and why do you enjoy doing it?
As a Work Week Manager at Plant Hatch, my primary responsibility is to ensure nuclear safety and manage the risk associated with work by planning, scheduling, preparing and executing work to maximize the availability and reliability of station equipment and systems. I love my job because it enables me to work directly with every department on the plant…
