  • Security of energy supply concerns strongly favouring nuclear as the most reliable source of large scale baseload electricity generation
  • Growth of electricity demand driven by urbanisaiton and the electrification of transportation
  • Nuclear as a low-cost source of energy in the face of rapidly increasing fossil fuel costs
