In the rapidly evolving electricity market, the value of nuclear power to the energy mix will depend on its capacity to meet current and future energy needs — as reflected by these three pillars. It is evident that meeting these expectations will require innovation in nuclear technology.
Nuclear power plants provide reliable dispatchable power generation that is transmitted as needed by electricity grid operators day and night, all year around, and in all weather conditions. Moreover, nuclear power plants are deployable on a large scale to meet the expected increase in demand for carbon-neutral electricity. Read more
