Bannerman Energy's Brandon Munro on uranium sector, nuclear's prospects and impact of war
Brandon Munro, CEO of Bannerman Energy, joins us to consider the impact on the uranium and wider nuclear sector of the Russia-Ukraine war as it continues into a second year.
Munro sees a bright future for the uranium sector and also talks about the prospects for an expansion of nuclear in Africa and why he sees the Cameco-Westinghouse deal as a good thing, and one which gives more backing for the idea of nuclear energy being part of green taxonomies.
And what about those people who are opposed to nuclear energy? Is it possible to change minds? Munro, who has around 20,000 followers on Twitter (@brandon_munro) says that conversations are key - in his experience once people know the facts they tend to be in favour.
Never before has one country's military occupied another country's nuclear power plants. World Nuclear News's Claire Maden joins host Alex Hunt to recap a timeline of some of the key events.
