The prospect of having an R&D location in New Mexico stems from opportunity. In partnership with the state’s Economic Development Department, Albuquerque Economic Development, the City of Albuquerque, and the New Mexico Partnership, we have identified a unique opportunity to work together in assisting with recruiting talented New Mexicans that share in our vision to enable the world’s transition to clean energy, bringing jobs to the Land of Enchantment.
New Mexico has a long history in innovative nuclear energy development and Kairos Power selected a location less than ten minutes from the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History.
Additionally, the state allows Kairos to be in close proximity to two national laboratories, top-notch universities with robust nuclear engineering departments, and the opportunity to revitalize an existing industrial facility previously used for advanced energy manufacturing.
For companies like Kairos, the New Mexico economic development team has created a hub to assist with education, technical assistance and making connections for a lasting economic impact in the community.
This facility, which is Kairos Power’s third location in the US (in addition to Alameda, California, and Charlotte, North Carolina), is expected to bring nearly 70 new jobs by the end of 2024, with an average annual salary of over $100,000.
