Dec 08, 2010 NPEC Signs Letter to Congress Opposing Wasteful Loan Guarantee Program
This letter urges Congress not to increase available funding for the Department of Energy Innovation Technology Loan Guarantee program. This program would increase the total nuclear loan program to $27.5 billion to cover four nuclear projects. Loans for nuclear reactors have been found to have a 50% risk of default, a risk that will be borne by the taxpayer. Moreover, providing loan guarantees to financially risky projects that the private sector won’t finance is fiscally reckless and politically unwise.
Nov 15, 2010 Bipartisan Group to President Obama: Block French Loan Guarantees If Paris Refuses to Support US Global Nonproliferation Standards
NPEC’s executive director and 16 other leading US nuclear control experts from both the Right and the Left today called on President Obama to condition the provision of any US federal energy loan guarantees to foreign nuclear suppliers wishing to expand their nuclear business in the US upon them supporting strong US nonproliferation standards for nuclear exports globally.  In a letter to the President, the bipartisan group specifically urged the President not to grant $9.5 billion in proposed federal nuclear loan guarantees to the French government owned firms of Areva and Edf unless the French government is willing to support the nonproliferation conditions on the spread of easy-to-militarize nuclear fuel making activities and the need for intrusive inspections contained in the US-UAE nuclear cooperative agreement, which was finalized last year.
