Tech Talk on the American Nuclear Energy Revival

After reading a BBC piece on the revival of the American nuclear energy industry, Tech Talk, the blog over at IEEE Spectrum, had this to say:

For now, though, the rehabilitation of the nuclear genie is almost complete. We will all now have to witness, once again, whether its promises can ever be matched by its performance.
That's a curious conclusion. One wonders if the folks at Tech Talk have been paying close attention to the significant gains in reliability and efficiency at American nuclear plants, including an average industry-wide capacity factor of about 90%.
