 20 year
wait for
the power
nuclear power industry in Austra-
lia was at least 20 years away,
a uranium sector conference was
told yesterday.
   However, the nation needed to
"keep its options open" and
should begin now to put in place
the building blocks such as regu-
lation and training, University
College London director Tony
 Owen said.
   "There is an urgent need to put
in enabling investments now,"
Professor Owen told the PayDirt
Australian Uranium 2010 confer-
ence at the Adelaide Hilton.
   Professor Owen, who holds the
Santos chair of energy resources
at the UCL's Adelaide campus,
 added that neither nuclear nor
carbon capture and storage tech-
nology was economically com-
petitive without a carbon price.
