On March 11, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) declined to review a 2012 agency decision that Unistar Nuclear Energy LLC may not build a new reactor at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power station in southern Maryland because the French company has no U.S. partner. The Atomic Energy Act prohibits foreign ownership, control or domination of a U.S. nuclear reactor. Unistar would have to reapply to the NRC if it were to find a U.S. partner.
