Taking the Lead on Nuclear


The U.S. should lead when it comes to maintaining safe, secure, reliable nuclear energy programs. Taking action to maintain current power plants, complete new plant construction, and further nuclear technology development can enhance power grid operations with a more reliable capability; shape global standards for safety and security operations, emergency response and nonproliferation; and prevent certain countries from aggressively leveraging influence as an energy supplier to fragile countries across the globe.

It is in our economic and national security interest to share our innovation and set higher standards for the use of safe, trusted nuclear technology around the world.
