Topic: America's Energy Challenge: "Why the U.S. Needs Nuclear Power"
Wednesday, April 17th, 2013
117 Newberry St, Aiken SC
Nuclear science and technology has had an enormous impact in providing for the public good. With the growing demand for energy that has a minimal effect on the environment, nuclear energy represents one of the key ways to provide electrical power at any time of the day and at a competitive cost. Just as important, it provides the U.S. with a large-scale, carbon-neutral power source domestically, enhancing our energy security.
Nuclear power in the U.S. remains safe, and we are enhancing the protections against extreme natural events. And most importantly, the first new generation of reactors since the 1980s are now being built in the Southeast in a predictable and cost-effective mananer. This talk will investigate the key reasons we need to maintain nuclear power as an option for the U.S.
