Carolinians are world leaders in the design, construction and supply of electricity. The Carolinas supply 11.5% of the nation's nuclear energy.
Our states are home to four publicly traded power generating companies and major energy engineering companies. Our two states have a strong nuclear supply chain and we are strengthening that supply chain.
WHAT OUR ENERGY EXPERTISE MEANS TO US:
The headlines about energy supply, economics and cleanliness align in an energy imperative: The Carolinas have a unique competitive advantage in nuclear energy. The two states, through the Carolinas Nuclear Cluster, can be the go-to source for a global nuclear renaissance.
WHAT IS THE CAROLINAS' NUCLEAR CLUSTER?
The CNC is an industry-driven collaboration devoted to the prosperity of nuclear organizations in the Carolinas. As a collective we can attract more attention, open more doors and gain more influence that we can as individuals. In the CNC, our members know the balance: When to cooperate and when to compete. The CNC is based on:
The people, services and products in the Carolinas Nuclear Cluster fortify our states' economy, create environmentally friendly electricity, contribute to our energy independence and are the world's center of nuclear energy excellence.
The organization collaboratively strengthens workforce, services, products and policies to extend our global leadership.
Define the economic development proposition of the inudstry in the Carolinas and develop support businesses for industry growth.
Drive positive public policy for the Carolinas' nuclear energy industry base.
Develop and support an ample, sustainable energy oriented workforce.
Support technology enhancement.
Enhance communications and market the effectiveness of Carolinas' nuclear energy expertise.
