... But larger development efforts supported (and often managed) by DOE NE that may allow nuclear to play a larger role in decarbonization have not led to the deployment of a new reactor design concept in the United States, with frequent program starts and stops as administrations change and research focus waxes and wanes (Ford et al.

... The other was the Nuclear Power 2010 Program (NP 2010) , which began in 2001 and succeeded in supporting two light water reactor designs through the development, licensing, and siting process -- that is, Westinghouse AP1000 and the GE-Hitachi Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (ESBWR)

... After eight years and $640 million in funding, DOE NE cancelled further development efforts owing to an inability to successfully partner with industry in the deployment phase of the project for a specific reactor design. A 2014 report from the Government Accountability Office summarized the project as follows: Among the advanced reactor technologies that NE's R&D currently supports, the high-temperature gas-cooled reactor is the technology that is most likely to be deployed and commercialized in the near term, according to an NE planning document.
