The article reports on the U.S. Department of Energy's declaration that it has selected NuStart Energy Development LLC's proposal as an award candidate to receive 50-50 matching funds under its Nuclear Power 2010 program. The program is part of an overall DOE strategy to ensure energy stability and fuel diversity by encouraging power generation advances in nuclear, coal, wind and solar. Nuclear power is already making an important contribution to the diversification of energy resources as well as to the prevention of climate change. Nuclear power currently provides 16% of the world electricity supply, reducing global CO, emissions by nearly 10%.
