In this report, ESA presents its achievements for 2021, offering then an overview of the nuclear fuel world market and the main developments in the EU, and the analysis of the supply and demand of nuclear material and services in the EU.

The diversification and the security of supply of nuclear materials and fuel in the EU, which is the strategic objective of ESA by means of the common supply policy, are the key topics of the Annual Report.

As said by Agnieszka Kaźmierczak, Director-General of the Euratom Supply Agency,

The Euratom Supply Agency has long advocated for the diversification of nuclear material and the related fuel cycle services in the EU. The political and economic events in 2021 and early 2022 seriously impacted the global nuclear market and highlighted the relevance and urgency of ESA recommendations.
