The article presents an interview with president and chief executive officer of the Nuclear Energy Institute Joe Colvin. Colvin stresses on the need to build generation capacity which addresses current environmental issues. Majority of generation which developed in the U.S. over the last decade is natural gas-fuelled. The nuclear power industry has worked through U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's licensing processes for new plants and engineers have been working through those processes to validate them to ensure good business decisions. The U.S. Department of Energy is supporting the early site permit program.
