Nuclear Power in the US
Over the five years to 2018, the Nuclear Power industry has contracted due to lackluster electricity demand and slow electricity price growth. The necessity of electricity for consumers and businesses tends to result in stable demand for industry operators; however, nuclear power generation has grown sluggishly due to growing public concerns regarding nuclear safety. Over the five years to 2023, the Nuclear Power industry is anticipated to grow slowly as electricity prices rise alongside electric power consumption.
This industry consists of companies that operate nuclear-powered, electricity generation plants. The power plants use nuclear fuel to generate steam, which in turn is used to power turbines that generate electric power. The electricity reaches end users via transmission or distribution systems. This industry excludes government-owned nuclear facilities.
