From insight to action

Last Energy uses a customer-driven approach, focusing on first principles to bring nuclear energy to scale. Our innovation is simple: leverage only proven nuclear technology, create a replicable, manufacturable power plant, and size for private capital. This is how you unlock nuclear power at scale, and that is what we founded Last Energy to do.

Our story

Bret Kugelmass founded the  EIC research institute  which  sought to answer the ultimate question of our lifetime: how to reverse climate change.

Nuclear is the answer.

To understand the industry’s challenges and future applications, EIC launched TON, the leading nuclear podcast featuring the greatest minds in nuclear energy.

We learned from the best.

EIC created the first open source, small PWR research project to prove that nuclear can be a widely accessible, standardized, and commercialized source of energy.

We tested our assumptions.

After years of research, EIC launched Last Energy to put our findings into action: integrate proven reactor technology and a full-service delivery model to scale nuclear, decarbonize energy production, and increase access to clean, affordable power.

We are building nuclear’s future.

Together we are advancing the world’s clean energy future.

Last Energy brings global expertise from across the energy landscape to accelerate the development of clean, baseload power.
