Nuclear Power News

The nuclear power industry is a key component of America's energy security. It is therefore not surprising that there is broad interest in following nuclear power news. That's why Wiser created this tailored email service. Nuclear power accounts for 19 percent of the electrical output in the United States (2013). It is power that is produced by nuclear processes at nuclear reactors. There are more reactors in the US than anywhere else in the world - currently about 100 with new plants under construction, and others in the planning phase. As with other forms of energy, nuclear power is the subject of debate. For many it is a sustainable source of energy that produces fewer carbon emissions than fossil fuels, so is better for the environment. Critics highlight safety fears. Those debates are set to continue, as are debates surrounding the future of energy production - nuclear power is a part of that debate. Staying informed of all of the issues is easy with Wiser. We provide detailed nuclear power news and analysis through our daily digest, delivered straight to your inbox. Register today.
