South-East Asian prospects for nuclear power

- By: ,

South-East Asia's strong economic growth of recent decades is expected to endure the requirement of increasing amounts of energy as well as the corresponding capital investments. The development of a nuclear power industry has been considered for some time in several states, but concrete government action is yet to follow. Decisions to launch nuclear power programmes would be facilitated if and when the international nuclear energy scene becomes more conducive, especially if countries in other regions either revive or adopt nuclear power programmes within the next few years for reasons such as mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, security of supply or lower electricity costs.
