Nuclear power suppliers today face a challenge that has remained unresolved for decades: nuclear waste. This waste can remain radioactive for hundreds of thousands of years and can contaminate the environment if not disposed of properly.
While fleets are concerned with the procurement of EVs, energy suppliers are concerned with ensuring the grid can even support such a large increase in demand. The US Department of Energy estimates that electricity consumption could go up by 38 percent by 2050 due to the transition to EVs. The challenge now is generating enough clean energy to support this change.
