Nuclear energy plays a key role in the supply of safe, clean and reliable electricity.
Balancing wind, solar and nuclear power will help achieve a carbon-free future and positively impact our changing climate. Over the past 50 years, globally, nuclear power has avoided nearly two years of the world’s energy-related CO2 emissions. Imagine how much more carbon pollution we can prevent.
Solar, wind and nuclear energy are essential to a carbon-free future, but the sun doesn’t always shine, and the wind doesn’t always blow. Nuclear power plants are almost always on, delivering the highest availability energy source and operating at maximum capacity more than 90% of the time.
When it comes to creating a more sustainable planet, the need for renewable energy can’t replace the need for safe energy. With nuclear power, you get the best of both worlds.

The next generation small modular reactor for remote applications
In late April 2021, the Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station located in Suffolk, England – the U.K.’s only Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) – discovered an anomaly following the removal of the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) head.
