The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is a non-profit organization which promotes clean energy throughout the Southeast portion of the United States.
Opposition to Nuclear Energy
The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy opposes nuclear energy. A statement on the SACE website lists nuclear with coal as examples of “high-risk energy sources” that “endanger our economy, health, security, water resources, and the environment.”  Nuclear power plants produce no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions, and as of 2021 accounted for 20 percent of American electricity production—the largest source of zero-carbon electricity in the United States.  An October 2018 proposal from The Nature Conservancy noted that zero-carbon nuclear plants produced 7.8 percent of total world energy output and recommended reducing carbon emissions by increasing nuclear capacity to 33 percent of total world energy output.
