Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Joe Nocera opines that the Ex-Im Bank that helps to secure deals for both small businesses wanting to expand and giant American exporters, that would otherwise go to foreign companies. The Ex-Im Bank in its last fiscal year generated enough in fees and interest to turn over $675 million to the Treasury. Why would anyone in their right mind want to put such a useful agency out of business? The far-right wing of the Republican Party.

A vast majority of senators, Republicans included, very much want to see the Ex-Im Bank live to lend another day. So do most business people, no matter w... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Michael R. Blood reports that Federal regulators have closed a case that questioned whether Southern California Edison violated government rules when it installed faulty equipment at the now-closed San Onofre nuclear power plant.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission ruling Thursday concluded the issue is no longer relevant since the coastal reactors, located between Los Angeles and San Diego, are retired. In 2012, the environmental group Friends of the Earth asked the agency to review if majority owner Edison misled the NRC when it replaced steam generators in a $670 million overhaul i... More →

Index / Climate Change and Associated Issues
Joby Warrick reports that four weeks before the official rollout, the news for President Obama signature regulation on climate change suddenly went from bad to abysmal. Already, the Senate top Republican was urging a nationwide boycott of the carbon-cutting proposal known as the Clean Power Plan. Fourteen states had joined in a lawsuit seeking to block the rule even before it became final. Then came a blow from the Supreme Court - a surprise June 29 decision blocking the White House previous attempt at curbing pollution from coal-burning power plants.

By July 7, the head of the Envi... More →

Cecilia Jamasmie reports that while analysts are predicting a rebound in hard-hit rare earth prices later this year, the question that remains unanswered is whether companies outside China, the largest producer, will be able to challenge its dominance.

Melody Bomgardner, a senior editor at Chemical & Engineering News, the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, is not so sure. In a piece published this week, he argues that most of the mining companies that once bet on rare earths are now facing a contradictory reality, as they are working to hike output at a time o...

Greg Klein reports that a recommendation against uranium mining in Quebec has come under fire from the federal agency that regulates uranium mining and nuclear energy in Canada. In a July 27 letter to Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission criticized the province BAPE commission for conclusions and recommendations that lack scientific basis and rigor.

Earlier this month, following a year-long review, the provincial government suggested Quebec could decide to suspend uranium mining either temporarily or permanently. Should the province decid... More →

William Pentland reports that the Tesla new storage batteries will not put your local utility out of business anytime soon. That was the take away from the Elon Musk keynote address yesterday at Edison Electric Institute annual convention in New Orleans.

Industrial-scale batteries designed for peak shaving are projected to account for upwards of 90% of all Tesla battery sales, according to Musk. Rather than hurting utilities, this should help them, according to Musk. Batteries can be used to shift load, reducing peak demand.

Of course, I never worried about the Tesla bat... More →

Dr. Conca reports that the Brattle Group, with support from the Edison Electric Institute, just released a study concluding that utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the U.S. are more cost effective than residential-scale (rooftop) PV systems in achieving the economic and policy benefits we all expect to come from the widespread use of solar energy. But it may not be that simple and depends on what goal you have as a user.

The study was commissioned by First Solar, one of the largest solar companies in America. Titled Comparative Generation Costs of Utility-Scale and Res... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
The Cantor uranium spot-price predictions for the next three years remain the same - US$50 in 2016, US$60 in 2017 and US$70 in 2018. According to Rob Chang, his firm confidence is rooted in uncovered requirements. Essentially, utilities will eventually have to start buying as reactors cannot operate without uranium. At some point, someone is going to have to jump in and buy and others will do the same, the spot market is so thin that it will show. Just like last year, when a few buyers came in it went from US$28 to the US$40 range really quickly, he said.

Pele Mountain Resources Inc. today provided an update regarding the escalating dislocations in the rare earth industry and resulting implications for Pele monazite processing strategy. In 2014, Pele expanded its business model to include the sustainable development of a low-cost, early-to-market, rare earth processing center in Elliot Lake, Ontario, at the site of its Eco Ridge Mine Rare Earth and Uranium Project.

Pele President Al Shefsky stated that after advancing Eco Ridge for several years, he realized more than a year ago that the already difficult capital markets were becomin... More →
