Morning Brew's Kelcee Griffis is reporting on the startup DC-based Last Energy and it's work with nuclear energy. 

Last Energy, a DC-based green-tech startup, is pioneering the use of micro-scale nuclear reactors to provide clean, stable energy for data centers, a sector increasingly demanding power due to advancements like AI. Despite its compact designation, each reactor is quite substantial, capable of powering the equivalent of 20,000 homes. Currently successful in Europe with plans for over 55 units across four countries, Last Energy is eyeing expansion into the U.S. market. The company aims to challenge and change the negative perceptions surrounding nuclear energy by proving its feasibility through timely and cost-effective project deliveries. As part of their outreach, they are making their reactor prototype visible to the public, including a permanent display in Washington, DC, underscoring the role of nuclear energy in achieving decarbonization and electrification goals.
