POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas released the results of the “Dallas Fed Energy Survey” with more than half of the respondents expecting higher natural gas prices in a year and more than 70 percent of participants expecting higher oil prices. Dallas Fed Senior Research economist sees a “stabilization” in business conditions based on the survey’s results.

The analysis suggests that if we are serious in reaching these goals, nuclear energy needs to be a part of the energy mix as it is key in achieving the 90 percent of carbon-free energy needed by the end of the century. Of the 14 percent of energy (as of 2014) from carbon-free sources, nuclear energy provides the largest percentage at 5 percent.
