The following is a statement from Jacques Besnainou, CEO of AREVA Inc., on the introduction of the American Power Act today by Sens. John Kerry and Joe Lieberman:
“The energy and environment legislation offered today is very good for America because it would help our nation move toward using more clean energy, including more nuclear energy and renewables.
We applaud the work by Sens. Kerry and Lieberman to offer this legislation, as well efforts by Sen. Graham in its development.
We at AREVA hope Congress will give serious consideration to this legislation not just because it will promote clean energy and control greenhouse gas emissions, but also because it will spur investment in new clean energy projects and create American jobs.”
