You are here

This final report presents the findings and recommendations of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) Task Force on The Future of Nuclear Power. The Task Force was charged with describing the landscape that must be crossed to go from today's situation of reliance largely on light water reactors to a situation in the period 2030 to 2050 where one or many nuclear technologies have reached technical and commercial maturity and are deploying at a rate that has the possibility of carbon free nuclear power generation contributing 20 percent of global electricity generation. 

The report was approved by the full SEAB at its quarterly meeting in Washington, DC on September 22, 2016.

Also attached are comments from the Clean Air Tast Force and the NRC on the SEAB Future of Nuclear Power draft report.
