Nuclear energy as a solution to the world’s accentuating climate crisis was cast aside following the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan in March 2011.
More than a decade later, nuclear energy is back in the mix, and Paladin Energy is ready. The company owns 75% of the Langer Heinrich Mine in Namibia, with a historical track record of mining 43 million pounds of uranium over ten years before it was shuttered. The mine is now expected to resume production in the first quarter of 2024, with Paladin having a portfolio of offtake agreements already in place.
For 28 years, the United Nations has been sponsoring an annual climate change conference. At the 28th conference held in Dubai in late 2023, the United States, Japan, France, and 19 other nations agreed to triple the nuclear power supplies in their countries by 2050. China and India are the current world leaders in constructing nuclear power plants.
Over five years, the Paladin Energy share price is up 496.15%.
