Nuclear Energy In Nigeria: A Policy Book
Nigeria, for fifty years, has pursued the ambition to deploy nuclear energy to optimise its contribution to the national electricity mix. The key drivers to actualising this venture are robust policy, strategic plans and adequate implementation programmes, such that each must complement one another. Nigeria has shown strong outing with the first two elements, but the challenge has always been implementing. This book comprises seven distinct but related chapters, covering the major subject areas and pathways, particularly one on the Vision for the future of nuclear energy in Nigeria with an innovative advisory for the needed steps and actions.
2021 Review of Africa’s Nuclear Energy Developments
Despite the backdrop of the COVID pandemic now into the second year, many African countries remain resolute that nuclear energy could be the answer to their energy woes and to increase their level of energy security. What is heartening is the increase in government support for nuclear energy development in countries like Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria, Zambia, Rwanda and Niger. The report summarizes the key industry updates and developments in the African nuclear energy market in 2021. We hope it will provide readers with vital insights, which shall help you to develop key sustainable strategies for your business.
2021 Review of India’s Nuclear Energy Developments
The report summarizes the key industry updates and developments in the Indian nuclear energy market in 2021. We hope it will provide readers with vital insights, which shall help you to develop key sustainable strategies for your business. After the COVID -19 pandemic emerged, 2021 was the year of adapting to the “new normal”.

Opportunities for SMR Deployment in the Eastern European Market
This report aims to facilitate SMR technology vendors in their outreach to potential recipient countries in the Eastern European region. This is done so by providing a detailed analysis of each country’s environment and resources using the Analytic Hierarchy Process, which showcases the strengths and weaknesses of each country. This study will be of interest to SMR vendors for their outreach to potential SMR markets in Eastern Europe. It will also interest the energy ministries in Eastern European countries to gain a better understanding of the progress of their neighbors in the SMR market.
Financing Options for SMRs in Africa
A key hurdle for the implementation of SMRs, as with other traditional nuclear power projects, is the sourcing for financing of such projects. This report therefore seeks to evaluate the efficacy of financing options that have been employed in other nuclear power projects. Specifically, the report will focus on the applicability of various financing mechanisms in the African region, considering its unique political and economic factors. Given the novelty of SMR technology, there is no available template for which financing can be modelled after, especially in the African market. This report thus seeks to consolidate the various proposed financing options and comment on their validity in the African region.
Is Nuclear Energy An Option Being Considered By Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka is not what comes to mind when thinking about nuclear power. While the country may be in the nascent stage of establishing a nuclear power program, tremendous work and effort has already gone into the planning for it. However, not enough attention or spotlight is put on this budding nuclear nation. With this report, it is aimed that Sri Lanka’s nuclear scene is brought to the attention of international nuclear stakeholder for potential collaboration.
Youth Perception of Nuclear Energy in Singapore 2021
Despite Singapore’s openness to innovation and rapid advancements in new technology, the country has not ventured into the exploration of nuclear power and technologies. Given that Singapore imports more than 95% of its total energy use, Singapore should be constantly on the lookout for cutting-edge technology to reduce our dependence. As public support is essential to the development of nuclear energy, the YOUNGS survey is conducted to gain a clearer understanding of the perception of youth on firstly, nuclear energy and its feasibility in Singapore, and secondly, the adequacy of exposure to knowledge on nuclear energy in the context of Singapore.
Arab Nuclear Industry Report 2021
The Arab world constitutes close to 22 countries, all with differing plans and progress on establishing nuclear energy. This report summarizes the key discussions, takeaways and recommendations from Arab Nuclear Business Platform Lite sessions held in August 2021, focusing on key areas which present opportunities, challenges and suggestions to accelerate the nuclear landscape in the Arab region.
Africa Nuclear Industry Report 2021
The Africa Nuclear Industry Report 2021 summarizes key discussions and takeaways from the Africa Nuclear Business Platform Lite 2021 virtual meeting which focused on Regulations, Human Capacity Building and the adoption of SMRs on the African continent.
India Nuclear Industry Report 2021
Indian nuclear energy market aims to achieve 22480 MW by 2031-32. The country has 22 operational reactors with a capacity of 6780 MW. The first indigenous 700 MW Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR) has been connected to the grid. The report summarizes the key discussions from India Nuclear Business Platform Lite (INBP Lite) sessions focusing on hot button issues, which presents the opportunities, challenges and suggestions to accelerate the Indian nuclear power programme.
Africa SMR Report 2021
NBP conducted a comprehensive survey for the African continent which comprised of both newcomer and expanding countries. The key objectives of the survey were to understand the concerns, vision and level of understanding which the African countries wanted from SMR technology. Results from this survey will play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between SMR Developers and end users with the goal of accelerating the deployment of SMR technology on the rising African continent.
