Nuclear energy has a much wider potential than being used solely for the generation of electricity. This publication concentrates on the market potential and economics of the nuclear option in district heating, the supply of process heat, water desalination, ship propulsion and outer space applications. In addition, there is an overview of innovative but promising areas for its use, such as fuel synthesis (including hydrogen production) and oil extraction.
