The nuclear energy industry in the US is worth well over $60 billion, with the US having the highest number of nuclear power plants in the world (104 nuclear power plants as of 2010). There is no doubt that the US is one of the biggest players in the global nuclear power industry, with the US government supporting the growth of the industry since the 1990s.

With the support of favorable regulations, couple with the rising cost of fossil fuels and the environmental impact of using fuels such as coal and oil & gas, nuclear energy had become an attractive option for generating electricity for the US.

However, the Fukushima nuclear disaster has led to the US putting on hold many future nuclear power plant projects. This move is surely going to have an impact on the US nuclear power industry, with the actual extent remaining to be seen.

What remains to be seen in the coming years is whether or not the United States can survive without the large amount of power that is generated from nuclear power every year in the country. With the debate raging on strong about the use and safety of nuclear power, alternative sources of energies such as clean coal, LNG, renewable READ MORE >
