How Long Before Uranium Shortages?


Key Points

  • New nuclear power plants will take a minimum of 10 years to bring on line which is not fast enough to mitigate peak oil or climate change
  • 429 active reactors in use today. New plants will barely replace existing ones reaching decommissioning stage in 10 years
  • Skills of workforce have been greatly reduced due to lack of new plants being built.
  • Nuclear plants are barely economical (see EROI)
