The Nuclear Nonoperating Owners’ Group (NNOG) is made up of individuals interested in serving the nuclear industry through support of the NNOG mission. About 20% (approximately 20,000 MW) of US nuclear capacity is owned by non-operating owners. Over 46% of US nuclear plants have shared ownership. Typically this involves several utilities owning a portion of a plant and one utility or an independent operating company operating the facility for all owners. Non-operating owners range from small municipal light departments and cooperatives to some of the largest investor owned and public power organizations in the country. Every jointly owned US plant has been represented at NNOG conferences.
NNOG is a working group of individuals. Participation in its activities does not necessarily mean agreement with views expressed by NNOG, other individuals, or the utilities for which they work. NNOG is not an organization which represents the non-operating owners, nor does it purport to speak on their behalf, individually or collectively.
The principal NNOG activities are focused upon conducting annual conferences and meetings designed to provide timely and relevant information to attendees to support their efforts to manage non-operating owners’ nuclear assets. Presentations are from recognized experts in their field and typically include one or more nationally recognized individuals. Formal conferences have been conducted since the fall of 1987.
NNOG activities are coordinated by a Steering Committee made up of persons with an active interest in matters involving non-operating owners. NNOG currently has an Accounting & Auditing Committee, a Technical Committee and a Communications and Information Exchange Committee, each of which provides a special focus on these specific topic areas.
