In 2016 the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) reported that two new nuclear reactors were being built in in South Carolina,¬†along with¬†two in Georgia and one in Tennessee. According to the NEI, "the U.S. Department of Energy projects that demand for electricity in the United States will rise 22 percent by 2040. That means our nation will need hundreds of new power plants to provide electricity for our homes and continued economic growth. Maintaining nuclear energy's current 20 percent share of electricity production will require building one reactor every year starting in 2016, or 20 to 25 new reactors by 2040, according to DOE forecasts."
