Green Car Congress
NOVEMBER 7, 2015
Although overshadowed by the announcement on denial of a Presidential Permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline ( earlier post ), on Friday, the Obama administration also on Friday announced and highlighted a number of actions to sustain and advance nuclear energy in the US. In 2014, nuclear power generated about 60% of carbon-free electricity in the United States, and continues to play a major role in efforts to reduce carbon emissions from the power sector.
