Brochure title:
Nuclear regulatory expertise for America’s energy future
Description:
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) projects the United States will need 40 percent more electricity by 2030, and that worldwide population growth and corresponding rates of energy consumption will cause global energy demand to double in the next few decades. In order to minimize the impact on energy resources and global climate change from this energy growth, the world must significantly increase its use of nuclear power. Nuclear energy is a carbon-free, large-scale energy source that will continue to grow as demand for affordable, environmentally-responsible energy expansion persists.
