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.

Bringing advanced nuclear technology to communities that need clean, reliable electricity doesn’t just happen. The process involves research and development in the lab as well as interactions with the technology’s licensing authority, in this case the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Those interactions are vital to receiving design certification and an operating license—the ultimate goal.
