In this EIRP policy report, EIRP Senior Advisor Paul Saunders argues that today’s U.S. nuclear energy policies–accumulated over decades, from the beginning of the nuclear age–have not kept up with realities. To restore U.S. nuclear energy leadership and exports, the United States should modernize its approach to civil nuclear cooperation to account for changing geopolitics, technology, markets, and priorities. The report calls for new policies to innovate, accelerate, facilitate, and cooperate.
