  • Nuclear power is a critical component to reaching our economic and environmental goals.
  • Subsidizing mature energy sources such as wind, solar, natural gas, or even nuclear power distorts energy markets and allows the government to pick winners and losers.
  • An outdated regulatory framework also stifles innovation and prevents new plants from being built.
  • Given its potential, policymakers should reduce regulatory barriers to allow nuclear power to flourish.

“But one-off efforts are not enough. The current energy crisis demands a rethinking of all U.S. energy policy. We have spent decades trying to murder the nuclear industry. We’ll need to do more to revive it.”
