No matter who is elected president in November, it seems clear that climate change will dominate the national debate over energy and environmental policy in 2009 and beyond," said NEI President and Chief Executive Officer Frank L. (Skip) Bowman.

The nation's push to increase the use of carbon-free energy technologies is coupled with unprecedented electric infrastructure needs. These requirements make it imperative that private and public sectors rise to the challenge of building new nuclear plants, industry leaders said here today at the Nuclear Energy Institute's annual conference.

"No matter who is elected president in November, it seems clear that climate change will dominate the national debate over energy and environmental policy in 2009 and beyond," said NEI President and Chief Executive Officer Frank L. (Skip) Bowman. "Whether you believe the scientific evidence justifies mandatory controls on carbon or not, there is one fact on which we can all agree: There is no credible strategy to address the conundrum of climate change and increasing electricity demand unless nuclear power is part of the portfolio."
