Clean & Sustainable Dispatchable Power
Nuclear energy is a crucial zero-emission power source. Nuclear produces electricity 24/7 and provides more than 50% of the country's carbon-free electricity.
The next-generation nuclear energy fleet includes advanced reactors, small modular reactors and micro modular reactors. These reactors build upon the nuclear power industry's long history of reliable and safe operations. Plus, they provide more or less power on demand to meet variable loads and complement intermittent renewable generation sources.
