On Tuesday, May 24, 2016, Stanford University’s Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance and the Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy at The Hoover Institution co-sponsored a roundtable on the value and market viability of nuclear power in the United States. The goal of the meeting was to answer three questions: 1) What is the potential economic and environmental value of nuclear energy to the electric system? 2) What aspects of current market structure and policy impede the realization of that value, now or in the future? And 3) How can market design, public policy, and other factors be changed to better reflect that value in existing or new nuclear deployments?

The event, held at Stanford University, involved 27 invited participants, including chairs of state public utility commissions, federal government officials, industry executives, NGO leaders, and Stanford experts.
