UKERC Energy Research Roadmap Synthesis: Nuclear Energy (Fission) (May 2014)


Author(s) Compiled by Samantha Quinn, University of Edinburgh
Abstract This roadmap provides a set of measure and actions that define the global pathway for nuclear power deployment to 2050, focusing exclusively on the use of energy from nuclear fission. The roadmap provides a high level overview of the opportunities and challenges associated with nuclear expansion on a global level. The roadmap follows the needs of the industry in order to achieve the ETP BLUE Map scenario, which projects that nuclear capacity will reach about 1200 GW by 2050, providing about 24% of the global electricity supply. Throughout the document, recommendations and actions are highlighted.
