Certrec Market Research

January Poll Insights

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently released a report showing that hundreds of U.S. coal power plant sites could be converted to nuclear power plant sites. We asked our audience what percentage they believe the DOE found to be suitable to transition to nuclear?

Overall, 60 percent of coal plant sites received the most votes at 35 percent of the vote. Next 40 and 80 percent of coal plant sites tied for second at 29 percent of the vote, and finally 10 percent of coal plant sites received the least amount of votes at 6 percent.

The correct answer according to the DOE’s report is 80 percent. In the report, the study team identified 157 retired coal plant sites and 237 operating coal plant sites as potential candidates for a coal-to-nuclear transition. Of these sites, the team found that 80 percent are good candidates to host advanced reactors smaller than the gigawatt scale.
