Nuclear energy must be part of the energy mix to ensure a low-carbon economy.
Long-term, high-paying jobs abound as new reactors go up.
Watch videos from industry thought leaders sharing their perspectives.
Clean Air Energy
Concern about clean air is a main reason that 70 reactors are under construction around the world—including five in the United States.
Nuclear energy is by far the largest source of electricity that doesn’t emit any air pollution—and the only one that can produce large amounts of electricity around the clock. Nuclear energy has a major role in protecting America’s air quality. Learn more>>
While some predict meaningful climate change policy may take several years to finalize, nuclear energy, which provides almost two-thirds of America’s clean-air electricity, must continue to be part of the energy mix to solve our clean air challenges. Learn more>>
All energy sources produce greenhouse gases in the life cycle of a facility—from construction to operation. However, several independent studies show that nuclear energy’s “life-cycle” emissions of carbon dioxide are comparable to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro power. Learn more>>
