Is there a Nuclear Revival in the United States?
This paper examines whether there is a nuclear revival in the U.S. Part I examines the current status of existing reactors in the U.S. the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s rush to rubber stamp 20-year license renewals, and public opposition to relicensing these aging reactors. Part II looks at the key actors who are part of the decision-making process about whether to build new reactors, and what influence they have on the process. Part III then describes the existing federal and state subsidies for new and expanded projects in the U.S. Finally, Part V examines the new and expanded federal subsidies that were proposed in the 111th Congress, and explores whether all of these subsidies are enough to create a viable revival in the U.S.
