Educational Advocacy Organization

The Thorium Energy Alliance (website) is a 501(c)(3)[1] educational advocacy organization established to educate the public about the potential benefits of nuclear power production using the thorium fuel cycle. The Alliance's website states they "are a nonprofit group composed of engineers, scientists, and concerned citizens interested in reducing the cost of energy and protecting the health of the planet and the future of the human race. Our objective is to lay the foundation for a Thorium Energy Future."[2]

Although the Alliance's stated goal is thorium promotion, much of their advocacy is targeted at promoting molten salt reactors, specifically liquid fluoride thorium reactors.[3] [4] [5] [6] [7] In fact, during the Alliance's 2012 annual conference, speaker Dr. David LeBlanc said "come for the thorium, but stay for the reactor."[8]

Annual Conferences

In October 2009, the first Thorium Energy Alliance Conference (TEAC) was held at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC.[9]

Subsequent conferences in 2010[10], 2011[11] and 2012[12] have been held in Mountain View, CA, Washington, DC and Chicago, IL respectively. On May 30-31, 2013, TEAC5 will be held in Chicago again.[13]

All TEAC Proceedings can be found through the Alliance's website with YouTube hosting the video content.
