About us

Nuclear not only powers cities and towns, it drives all the high-tech things we love. It can make everything from cheeseburgers to robots. Nuclear gives us the power to invent, explore and discover. It is an invisible force that can take us to the outer reaches of space and the very depths of our ocean.

While powering our everyday lives and advanced technologies –¬†this invisible power creates jobs out of thin air and adds billions to our economy. It’s¬†working even when we’re not. It stays on no matter what Mother Nature throws at it.

Most importantly, it has the power to do all this in our lifetime while barely leaving a trace.
Some people might say it's kind of unbelievable. Extraordinary even.

It's not new. It's now. It's nuclear.

This project is sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Institute because we know first-hand the positive impact of nuclear energy on communities, economies and the environment, and we are passionate about advancing this vital energy source. Here at NEI, we work to drive policies that promote the beneficial uses of nuclear energy. We take pride in our role resolving complex technical and business issues. And, as this site shows, NEI works to provide accurate and timely information on the nuclear industry. Learn more about our mission here.
