ABSTRACT

World Nuclear Outlook 1994   [open pdf - 0B]

"This report presents the status of nuclear power at the end of 1993 for all countries with commercial nuclear power programs. The report also contains projections of nuclear capacity, electricity generation, nuclear fuel requirements, and spent fuel discharges throughout the world. New to this report is a section covering current U.S. uranium market developments and projections of uranium prices, imports, inventories and production. This section contains information and analysis that was previously reported in the Energy Information Administration's (EIA's) annual report on the viability of the uranium mining and milling industry in the United States. Controlling Operating and Maintenance (OM) costs is a major concern to utilities with nuclear power plants; therefore, we have included a new chapter on O&M [Operating and Maintenance) costs of nuclear power plants in the United States. This Chapter also contains some information on U.S. nuclear reactor capacity factors. The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) uses the projections of capacity, generation, and spent fuel discharges in the United States for estimating nuclear waste fund revenues, planning construction of a permanent waste repository, and preparing an annual report to Congress. Also, the DOE'S Assistant Secretary for Policy uses the report for information on the status and outlook of nuclear power worldwide. Projections of nuclear capacity, fuel requirements and uranium production contained in this report are provided to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the International Atomic Energy Agency."
