Abstract:

The extent to which the nuclear power industry should be expected and encouraged to contribute to US energy self-sufficiency is investigated by quantifying the current and projected shortfall in domestic energy resource production and examining the potentials of the nuclear industry and all feasible alternatives in eliminating the shortfall. Current data establishing the shortfall through the end of this century are presented, as are summaries of the current status and expected future contributions of alternative solutions.
