Why nuclear energy is on the verge of a renaissance

Catherine Clifford of CNBC writes about why nuclear energy is on the verge of a renaissance.

The C3 Take
  • From the 1950s to the 1970s nuclear energy grew rapidly in the United States, but has since faced regulatory and societal barriers that have hindered progress.
  • Nuclear power is safe, reliable, and our largest source of carbon-free energy.
  • As more countries look to reduce emissions in a timely manner, nuclear power could play a significant role in supplying energy needs.

“That’s largely because nuclear energy is clean energy, releasing no greenhouse gasses. Meanwhile, the world is seeing more of the effects of climate change, including rising global temperatures, increased pollution, wildfires, and more intense and deadly storms.”
