Nuclear energy is energy in the nucleus of an atom. Atoms are tiny particles that make up every object in the universe. Nuclear energy can be used to make electricity. But first the energy must be released. It can be released from atoms in two ways: nuclear fusion and nuclear fission.
In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart to form smaller atoms, releasing energy. Nuclear energy is produced by a controlled nuclear chain reaction and creates heat—which is used to boil water, produce steam, and drive a steam turbine. Instead of burning fossil fuels to produce the steam, nuclear plants use heat given off during fission. Nuclear power plants use this energy to produce electricity.

We also invite you to check on our energy glossary page for some basic concepts related to alternative energy sources.
