Uranium For A Net Zero World

According to the World Nuclear Association, tripling of nuclear generation is what the world needs to achieve carbon reduction goals and meet growing global energy demand. 

For the International Energy Agency, the nuclear industry has to double in size over the next 2 decades to meet net zero emissions targets. And according to McKinsey’s forecast, nuclear power generation needed in 2050 is massive. 

Nuclear Power Requirement in 2050

Currently, there are only 400+ nuclear reactors in operation worldwide. But 90 nuclear reactors are on order or planned globally, with 300+ more in the proposal stage.

And as nations strive to reduce carbon emissions, nuclear power presents a viable option for a large-scale energy source. Emerging economies in Asia are investing heavily in nuclear power. China and India, in particular, are considering nuclear energy for powering up energy grids, pumping up demand for uranium. 

Nuclear energy will play a major role in the global energy mix as the world moves towards net zero. And Uranium Royalty Corp is at the forefront in revolutionizing how business is done in the uranium sector. It is the only business leveraging innovative deals involving uranium. 

URC’s strategic approach aims to support cleaner, carbon-free nuclear energy while fostering long-term relationships based on sustainability principles. As the world looks toward nuclear power for achieving net zero goals, URC is ready to lead the charge in using uranium for a sustainable future.
