Oct 27, 2017Producer Jeffrey Donovan, Camera and Editing Martin Klingenboeck Energy is the engine of economic development and prosperity. Growing populations and expanding industries need more and more of it. But can energy power modern economies, without heating the planet or polluting our air? Nuclear power is one option. It currently produces about 11 percent of the
New York is home to six nuclear power reactors that produce 54 percent of the state's emission-free electricity. These nuclear energy facilities protect air quality and public health. Nuclear energy generates nearly 20 percent of our nation's electricity and provides more than 55 percent of our emission-free power,
We must move from a 20th-century energy system based on dirty, dangerous, and expensive fossil fuel and nuclear power to a 21st-century energy system based on renewables. The solution is a massive commitment to ramping up renewable energy coupled with energy storage while applying modern energy efficiency technologies to decrease demand. Wind
