Nuclear Energy Outlook 2008

World energy demand continues to grow unabated and is leading to very serious concerns about security of supply, soaring energy prices and climate change stemming from fossil fuel consumption. Nuclear energy is being increasingly seen as having a role to play in addressing these concerns. Responding to renewed interest in nuclear energy, this Nuclear Energy Outlook uses the most current data and statistics available and provides projections up to 2050 to consider growth scenarios and potential implications on the future use of nuclear energy. It also offers unique analyses and recommendations on the possible challenges that lie ahead. Topics covered by the NEO include nuclear power’s current status and projected trends, environmental impacts, uranium resources and security of supply, costs, safety and regulation, radioactive waste management and decommissioning, non-proliferation and security, legal frameworks, infrastructure, stakeholder engagement, advanced reactors and advanced fuel cycles.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter outlines currently deployed nuclear fuel cycles and the additional fuel resources that can be obtained from these cycles, before describing advanced fuel cycle options. The status of nuclear fuel cycle facilities worldwide is given in Chapter 1, and natural uranium resources are described in Chapter 5.
