Nuclear Is Big Part of Duke Energy’s Carbon Plan: Summit Update

Saijel Kishan and Alastair Marsh of Bloomberg report that nuclear energy is going to be a major part of Duke Energy’s plan moving forward.

The C3 Take
  • Duke Energy has plans to eliminate its carbon emissions by 2050.
  • Nuclear provides reliable and safe carbon-free energy.
  • Duke incorporating nuclear energy moving forward signals a genuine commitment to reducing emissions.

“Nuclear energy is a key part of Duke Energy Corp.’s plan to eliminate carbon emissions by 2050, according to CEO Lynn Good. As the company moves to retire coal-fired power plants, it also must focus on making sure its power grid is reliable. That means adding more renewable capacity and also maintaining its existing fleet of reactors that can supply electricity around the clock.”
