Part of GAIN’s mission is to ensure the continued safe, reliable, and economic operation of the existing nuclear fleet. Nuclear power is a key part of reaching our nation’s net-zero climate goals. It has reliably generated 20% of our nation’s electricity since the early 90s and provides more than half of our clean power. A robust nuclear fleet, and supply chains, also provide the groundwork for the next generation of advanced reactors.
