[en] Nuclear energy is poised to play a vital role in a U.S. pathway to decarbonize its energy sector. The ability of nuclear plants to provide large-scale, carbon-free energy at allow hours of the day makes it a vital complement to intermittent sources of non-emitting generation such as wind and solar power. For nuclear energy to fulfil this promise, however, these attributes will need to be valued in the marketplace. Without polices that provide this financial recognition of nuclear’s positive attributes, the economic pressures that have led to plant closures will continue and the challenge of decarbonization will become more daunting.
