In this InvestorIntel interview host Jack Lifton talks to Ur-Energy Inc.‘s (NYSE American: URG | TSX: URE) Chairman, CEO & President John Cash about the recent positive news for uranium producers and the coming renaissance of nuclear energy.
In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here to access InvestorChannel.com), John tells Jack that “so much good news has come out in the last just two or three weeks,” starting with the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes “a number of provisions within that act that really provide a lot of support for our existing reactors in the U.S. and also new builds going forward.” John goes on to say that “everyone was assuming that a number of reactors in the U.S. would be shutting down over the next 20 years, but I don’t think that’s the case anymore,” and “that means that they’ll be buying more uranium. There will be more demand on the front end of the fuel cycle and throughout the fuel cycle to keep those reactors up and running.”
John also talks about the increasing reliance on nuclear fuel as a green, carbon neutral source of energy, with reactors being restarted and new builds underway, including China’s ongoing build program of 150 new reactors. He also talks about the future of small modular reactors, with the expectation in the industry that as many as 300 new small modular reactors will be built by 2050 to meet domestic energy needs. John tells Jack that this renewed interest in nuclear energy will substantially increase demand for uranium, particularly from producers in stable, friendly jurisdictions.
