Matthew Ellis and Samuel Shaner

Yellowstone Energy is developing an advanced modular nuclear reactor with integrated thermal energy storage that maximizes use of existing supply chains to enable near-term deployment of a cost-effective, economic, and passively safe clean energy source. The Yellowstone Energy Molten Nitrate Salt Reactor power plant is unique among advanced reactors designs in using a molten nitrate salt coolant, the only high temperature, ambient pressure coolant commercially deployed in MW-scale thermal power systems. Matt and Sam earned PhDs in nuclear science and engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
