U.S. Needs New Nuclear Plants to Retain Expertise, Browner Says

Carol Browner, who resigned as the White House’s top adviser on climate change last year, said the U.S. needs to build new nuclear power plants to retain the technical knowledge.

“I’m concerned that if we don’t build new nuclear plants we’ll lose the engineers, scientists and construction workers with the know-how,” Browner said today in an interview at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit in New York.

“We tried to jumpstart the process and get more people interested in nuclear to improve the technology and reduce costs,” she said. Browner is now senior counselor at Albright Stonebridge Group.

Southern Co., based in Atlanta, received approval in February to build two new reactors at its Vogtle plant. The $14 billion project is the first to receive a license to build from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission since before the partial meltdown at the Three Mile Island facility in 1979.
