Opinion: Saudi Should Go Nuclear


Saudi Arabia may be the region’s top hydrocarbon producer, but it is also one of the largest consumers of energy resources. The situation is such that the Kingdom is looking to diversify its energy mix in the face of rapidly growing demand for electricity to meet the country’s mounting energy needs. Nuclear power has emerged as one of the most viable options at a time when the Kingdom requires sustainable energy sources to drive its ambitious march to the future.

The Kingdom plans to build two large nuclear power reactors as part of a program to deliver up to 16 nuclear power plants over the next 20 to 25 years at a cost of more than US$80 billion. (Shutterstock)
