Our nation’s nuclear energy plants are vital national assets that provide reliable, carbon-free electricity to tens of millions of households and businesses around the country. Nuclear Matters is a coalition that works to inform the public and policymakers about the clear benefits of nuclear energy. The coalition advocates for policy solutions that properly value nuclear energy as a reliable, affordable, safe and carbon-free electricity resource that is essential to America’s energy future.
On December 1, 2016, the CASEnergy Coalition and Nuclear Advocacy Network (NAN) joined Nuclear Matters to form a single, broad-based, multifunctional entity to leverage a diverse community of advocates and advance policies favorable to current and future nuclear energy use.
In furtherance of this mission, and building on the networks and previous efforts of the CASEnergy Coalition and NAN, Nuclear Matters will reach out to stakeholders and energy consumers around the country to engage and mobilize them in support of nuclear energy in their states and communities, and promote solutions that will help to preserve this essential energy resource.
