Analysis of Uranium Supply to 2050


Nuclear power is expected to be an important part of the worldwide energy mix at least for the next 50 years, and by most projections well beyond. That is, of course, provided an adequate supply of uranium is available to sustain the nominal growth rate for nuclear power of 1 to 3% per year that is projected by some analysts. The goal of this report is to evaluate the adequacy of supply to meet reactor uranium requirements (demand), and to characterize the level of confidence that can be placed in the projected supply.
