Seth Grae, President & Chief Executive Officer of Lightbridge Corporation, commented, “The benefits of nuclear energy have come into focus over the last year like never before. The global growth of energy demand and the need for national energy security continue to drive momentum towards more nuclear industry-friendly policy decisions. Countries and companies worldwide are setting targets for achieving net-zero carbon emissions. The International Atomic Energy Agency estimates that reaching net-zero emissions will require more than doubling current nuclear power generating capacity.”
“Lightbridge is helping lead the way. We are making significant progress in developing Lightbridge Fuel™, which will drive shareholder value creation, but there is still much work to do. With your support, we are confident that Lightbridge will play a central role in the significant growth of nuclear power to meet energy security and climate goals. By voting “For” the proposals in the Annual Meeting proxy, we will be able to continue our progress,” concluded Mr. Grae.
