About the lecture

This lecture will explore the possibilities that can be launched for nuclear power in the US now that the first 4 units at 2 different sites have been approved for construction and operations. Will these plants be successful? Will this lead to a nuclear renaissance or will it be a short term blip in energy production? Will this allow any nuclear suppliers to capture the world market?
