DOE: US Needs 200 GW of New Nuclear Power by 2050
Shadow of Vogtle Cost, Time Overruns Could Stall Market Growth
The U.S. needs to start ramping up nuclear deployment by 2030 to keep steady growth of 13 GW per year through 2050 (see chart on left), while a delay of five years could require deployments of 20 GW per year and result in overbuilding the domestic supply chain (right).

DOE is estimating that 500 to 750 GW of clean, firm power — including 200 GW of new nuclear — will be needed to reach net-zero emissions economy-wide by 2050.
