Nuclear renaissance, nuclear revival, nuclear resurgence.


Since the 1970s, a lack of growth has beset the nuclear power industry. Economic issues with several root causes have ultimately stymied nuclear plant development.

Wildcards, such as global warming and global competition for energy sources, could propel a nuclear renaissance.
