The Context for "The Future of Nuclear Energy: A White Paper"
The New Millennium Nuclear Energy Summit was held successfully on December 7, 2010, in Washington, D.C. Senior leaders from government, industry and non-government organizations actively participated in defining the most important and substantive issues that confront the nuclear energy industry—an essential part of the United States’ energy production portfolio. This Summit initiated the process of developing comprehensive strategy to build a public- and private-sector consensus on the path forward for nuclear energy in the United States over the next several decades. The recommendations that comprise that strategy will be formalized in mid-2011. In preparation for the Summit, Third Way and the Idaho National Laboratory drafted this white paper to provide background and an overview of issues that were anticipated discussion topics for the Summit. The final version of this paper has been revised to accommodate comments and input from external readers.
