The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that nuclear power contributes 19.5% of the electricity generated in the US and serves as the largest source of carbon-free electricity accounting for 62.4% of the total carbon free electricity generated in United States. Nuclear power has the highest capacity utilization factor, highlighted by the fact that while only being 9% of the installed capacity for electrical power, it generates nearly 20 % of the electric power needs of the U.S.  

The panel will cover the following questions:

How big is nuclear energy? 

Can nuclear energy truly be considered a renewable energy resource? 

What does nuclear energy mean for the economy? 

What kind of risks does the use of nuclear energy pose on the environment?

And finally, what is next for the nuclear energy sector?

 


 

Following the presentations, the panelists will answer questions from the audience. Submit your questions on February 15, 2017 between 5:30 - 7:00PM via uh.edu/energy/ask
