Energy Collective Insights on U.S. Nuclear Future | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog


We agree with Matthew Stepp over at Energy Collective and his thoughtful response to the questions swirling about nuclear energy in America. His three reasons clearly outline a positive, safe energy future for the U.S.

“Without a doubt, we should question whether currently operating nuclear reactors can withstand such natural disasters (they can) and can effectively shut down if there is a power failure (they can). Policymakers should also require that new reactor designs are safe in these extreme situations, if it already isn’t. But any new legislative or regulatory action should not impede the long term development of nuclear energy for three reasons.”
