WNA report scales back projections from 2011

24 September 2013

In WNA’s new report, The Global Nuclear Fuel Market: Supply and Demand 2013-2030, world nuclear generating capacity is projected to increase 72%, from 334 GWe today to 574 GWe by 2030 in its reference scenario. The calculation includes an assumed reopening schedule for Japanese reactors not included in the 2013 capacity total. The upper scenario envisages total nuclear capacity reaching 700 GWe in 2030, whereas the lower scenario assumes no net growth. The report projects uranium demand increasing about 56% by 2030 in its reference scenario, and nearly doubling in its upper scenario.
