The Next 20 Years of Nuclear.png

The Next 20 Years of Nuclear will examine the policy, cost, and tech drivers of nuclear power’s future. Fission has provided reliable, affordable, low-carbon base load for five decades. However, unfavorable economics have resulted in recent shutdowns of aging reactors in the U.S. and cost concerns have paused a number of new projects. Can smarter policy and power market design address these concerns and invigorate both life extension and new construction? Will new designs such as small modular and molten salt reactors help emerging markets meet surging demand for clean power?
