Energy Industry CEO Roundtable: What Role Will Nuclear Play in Meeting 2050 Clean Energy Goals?

The aggressive goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 for the U.S. power sector presents a number of challenges with respect to energy portfolio management that is influenced by numerous factors including regulated versus deregulated energy markets, regional variations in future carbon-free/carbon-neutral energy sources, and economic drivers. Expansion of nuclear energy, which currently provides 55% of carbon-free electricity, has the potential to be a cornerstone of future energy strategies. This panel will discuss the future role of nuclear energy deployment within the context of energy portfolio management and net-zero carbon goals from the viewpoint of US utilities and energy suppliers.
