Why Nuclear and Why Now?

Andrew Worrall, deputy director of Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear and section head at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will present “Why Nuclear and Why Now?” Friday, February 19 via Zoom.

Today, nuclear energy in the United States produces approximately 20% of the nation’s electricity demand. It is the largest producer of the emission-free electricity, yet is often misunderstood and misrepresented. In his presentation, Deputy Director Worrall will highlight some of the pros and cons of nuclear energy and underline why an expansion in nuclear energy is required not just for the US, but also around the world.
