article description
The U.S. is at an inflection point on nuclear power with much debate revolving around the extent to which markets or policy should be leveraged to sustain nuclear. This has generated concerns about costs, grid reliability and climate. However, the national security implications must also be accounted for. Here, a strategic policy framework is presented as a means for sustaining U.S. nuclear power domestically and expanding U.S. nuclear power abroad as a national security imperative.
