Implications for Australia as a Supplier of Uranium to the Asian Region

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Significant interest in Australia’s uranium export industry has re-emerged relatively recently and on a broader front than before. This reflects expectations of uranium demand growth in the face of increased energy demand, fears of eventual reduced supplies of traditional energy sources, further evidence of global climate change and prospective higher electricity prices that would make nuclear energy more economic. This chapter looks at how Australia is responding to that renewed interest and how it seeks to balance its economic and environmental interests against the implications for its traditional nuclear non-proliferation activism.
