New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

New this year, Executive Panels have been added to provide busy nuclear professionals a broader look at developments in nuclear science and technology and their impact on policy and markets. The Executive Panels will focus on crisis communications, diversity and inclusion, lessons learned from new construction projects, and the 2021 Polar Vortex energy blackouts as well as advances in space technology, non-power technologies and nuclear capabilities, and action on nuclear waste.
Be a part of one of the largest gatherings of nuclear professionals in the country where the brightest minds engage – and inspire – leaders from across the nuclear science and technology landscape.
