AMERICA’S ENERGY CHALLENGE

“We’re the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it,” said President Barack Obama, signaling the United States’ commitment to leading the world in clean energy. In the United States today, 63% of our carbon-free electricity is provided by nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is a safe, reliable, sustainable, and affordable way for the United States to reduce its carbon footprint and meet its climate goals by 2030. From supporting the environment to supporting America’s communities, nuclear energy contributes over $60 billion dollars to America’s economy and support 475,000 jobs. Nuclear Matters is partnering with leaders and experts around the country to examine the impact nuclear energy has on their states’ economies. This effort also includes an analysis of the challenges they face in keeping nuclear energy a key part of America’s vibrant energy future.
