Electronuclear, which owns and operates Brazil’s nuclear power plants, is taking steps to implement the Brazil 10-year energy plan, which includes extending the Angra 1 operating license to 2044 and completing construction of Angra 3 by 2026.
Abstract from Steven P. Kraft:
The short answer is ‘yes!’ Nuclear energy will have a brilliant future in the U.S. if a nuclear industry collaboration with the federal government addresses a critical set of complex, interrelated issues.

Abstract from Jerud E. Hanson and G. G. Young:
