McCarthy: Nuclear energy isn’t going anywhere

Scott Waldman of E&E News reports that White House climate advisor Gina McCarthy will include nuclear energy in future clean energy goals.

The C3 Take
  • The White House’s support for nuclear is good news as nuclear is our largest source of carbon-free energy in the United States.
  • One way in which the White House can grow our nuclear fleet is through investing in innovative technologies and removing outdated and burdensome regulations.
  • Through an “all of the above” approach to energy, which includes nuclear, we can decarbonize our energy sector.

“McCarthy signaled during the event that the administration — which would need its CES to pass Congress — could include financial support for nuclear. Some older facilities may need additional financial support to stay operational as natural gas and renewables eat into its share of the grid, McCarthy said.”
