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.

Today is Earth Day, a day calling for action against the global climate emergency, with the theme of “Restore our Earth.” This restoration of our planet is critical in order to stop global warming. The way we produce and use energy is one of the keys to achieve this goal. It is inspiring to see how humankind has learned how to harness natural forces from the wind and sun in order to keep vehicles moving and industry functioning, avoiding tons of carbon emissions.
