ABSTRACT

Restoring America's Competitive Nuclear Energy Advantage: A Strategy to Assure U.S. National Security   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Nuclear power is intrinsically tied to National Security. [1] America has lost its competitive global position as the world leader in nuclear energy to state-owned enterprises, notably Russia and China, with other competitor nations also aggressively moving to surpass the United States (U.S.). [2] The Strategy to Restore American Nuclear Energy Leadership is designed to restore America's competitive nuclear advantages. It is in the U.S. national security interest to preserve and grow the assets and investments of the entire U.S. nuclear enterprise. We can do so by addressing domestic and international security interests, expanding nuclear generation, minimizing commercial fleet fiscal vulnerabilities, assuring defense needs for uranium, and leveling the playing field against state-owned enterprises."
