Nuclear Matters is excited to introduce Ken Luongo, founder and president of the Partnership for Global Security (PGS), as the newest member of the Nuclear Matters Advocacy Council.
Prior to PGS, Ken served in the Department of Energy as Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Energy for Nonproliferation Policy and as the Director of the Office of Arms Control and Nonproliferation. His extensive background in security challenges led him to develop new international coalitions, including the Global Nexus Initiative (GNI), a joint project with the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) that analyzes the dynamics between climate change, nuclear energy and global security.
Ken joins the Nuclear Matters coalition to help inform the public and policymakers about the importance of reliable carbon-free energy for the energy landscape and of valuing nuclear energy as integral for safety, the climate and the economy.
"The evolving global energy landscape has renewed bipartisan recognition of nuclear energy's ability to enhance our national security, combat the climate crisis and provide economic stability," said Nuclear Matters President John Kotek. “Nuclear Matters is thrilled to welcome Ken Luongo to our Advocacy Council, and we look forward to leveraging his valuable expertise in nuclear energy and international security to continue to advocate for our nation’s largest source of carbon-free energy.”
“When we developed the Global Nexus Initiative, we acknowledged the overlap between sustainability and security,” said Ken Luongo. “The role of collaboration and information-sharing for the future of nuclear energy is of the utmost importance – our global stability depends on it. I look forward to contributing to Nuclear Matters’ mission to help build America’s carbon-free future.”
Ken Luongo joins former U.S. Congressman Tom Graves, former EPA Administrator Carol Browner, and more than a dozen fellow industry leaders on the Nuclear Matters Advocacy Council. Supported by a growing coalition of hundreds of thousands of grassroots advocates across the country, the Advocacy Council engages and mobilizes a diverse community of voices to help build America’s carbon-free energy future.
