RFI At-A-Glance

We’re more than halfway into the response period for our Request for Information (RFI) on using a consent-based siting process to identify federal interim storage facilities. Ready to share your thoughts? You still have five weeks left to respond!


We are requesting information on how to use a consent-based siting process to site Federal facilities for the temporary, consolidated storage of spent nuclear fuel.


We anticipate that the following groups may be interested in responding to the RFI:

  • Communities
  • Governments at the local, State, and Tribal levels;
  • Members of the public;
  • Energy and environmental justice groups;
  • Organizations or corporations; and
  • Other stakeholders

We especially welcome insight from people, communities, and groups that have historically not been well-represented in these discussions.
