Fuel - Nuclear Power’s Trump Card?


Compared to coal or gas, nuclear fuel is inexpensive and constant in price, uranium reserves remain large - and quite possibly sustainable - and spent fuel is easily contained. Nuclear fuel has many associated advantages in comparison to other conventional fuel sources. Only a small quantity of uranium is required to produce a huge amount of nuclear energy. This leaves only minor quantity of solid waste which, as far as the industry is concerned, can be safely contained and managed. Fuel represents a small proportion of the generating costs of nuclear power and the relative price stability for electricity is assured regardless of fuel price fluctuations.
