Webinar Description

Nuclear energy supplies nearly 20 percent of all of our domestic electricity generation, and 55 percent of carbon-free generation. Nuclear power plants supply the baseload, always-available emissions-free electricity, while providing significant benefits to regional economies. This panel discussion will focus on the economics of nuclear power. Key topics to be discussed include the economic drivers for current nuclear power plants and what will be needed for bringing new nuclear plants online.
