The 2020 election season is here! And with it a renewed focus on hot topic issues like the environment, public health and the economy. Candidates may disagree about how to approach these issues, but the one thing we should all agree on is the importance of including nuclear carbon-free energy as part of the solution.

Karyne Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer, of the National Caucus and Center on Black Aging, adds her voice to the Nuclear Matters Advocacy Council

Nuclear Matters is disappointed in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) decision on December 19 to make it more difficult and expensive for states in the PJM Interconnection market to pursue policies that support zero-carbon energy sources like nuclear, wind, solar and other renewables.

Nuclear Matters applauds the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Governor Roy Cooper on their inclusion of carbon-free nuclear energy in the state’s Clean Energy Plan, which outlines a roadmap to a clean energy system by 2030.

North Carolina has a lot to be proud of: The Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s finest barbecue, craft breweries galore, and now, the chance to be carbon neutral. As a Duke Energy engineer and president of the non-profit North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN), an organization dedicated to developing leaders to energize the future of nuclear energy, my expectations are high for North Carolina’s energy future.

Dr. Kerry Emanuel, professor of atmospheric science at MIT, and Vice Admiral U.S. Navy (retired) Mel G. Williams, Jr., former Associate Deputy Secretary of Energy, add their voices to the Nuclear Matters Advocacy Council
