Nuclear energy is increasingly recognized as an essential component to address worldwide energy demand and environmental sustainability. There are over 50 reactors around the globe currently under construction. At the same time, the U.S. is currently ceding its global nuclear competitiveness. The recent Administration Strategy to Restore American Nuclear Energy Leadership calls for empowering the US global competitiveness, among other recommendations. This panel will discuss the current actions that US Government and industry is undertaking to strengthen the US competitiveness, as well as longer terms needs for the strategy to succeed.
