Carbon-Free Energy

Carbon-Free Energy

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.

  • Nuclear Energy:
    Provides 55% of the U.S.’s and 14% of the world’s carbon-free energy

Safety: Getting The Facts Right

Safety: Getting The Facts Right

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 fact is, it's safe
    Truth is, a person working full-time in a nuclear power plant receives less additional radiation in a year than a flight crew or a business traveler with 250 hours of flying time.
