There Is No Clean Future Without Nuclear Energy

Grace Stenke and Heather Reams write in RealClearEnergy about the importance of nuclear power.

The C3 Take
  • Nuclear power is our largest source of carbon-free power and in 2022 it provided 18% of America’s energy needs.
  • Despite its benefits, antiquated regulations are hindering the energy source by inflating costs and discouraging investment.
  • Congress has addressed these issues with piece of legislation like the ADVANCE Act and Atomic Energy Advancement Act.
  • Recognizing the incredible ways that nuclear can meet our energy, economic, and climate goals, lawmakers should modernize regulations to unleash an American nuclear power renaissance.

“The expansion of nuclear energy in the United States is not only a chance to show American leadership and competitiveness on global stage; it is an opportunity to grow our own economy, create jobs, and provide cleaner, reliable and affordable energy to all. As clean energy advocates, we look forward to continuing to work with lawmakers to advance policies that will accelerate nuclear power generation here in the U.S. as we continue to lead the world.”
