[en] The paper presents the main findings, which the World Energy Council (the Council) presented in a paper on The Future of Nuclear: Diverse Harmonies in the Energy Transition with contributions from the World Nuclear Association and the Paul Scherrer Institute. In this report, the future of nuclear is described through the lens of the Council's World Energy Scenarios archetype framework - Modern Jazz, Unfinished Symphony and Hard Rock - in three plausible, alternative pathways for the future development of the sector. This report also describes implications for the role of nuclear energy in the global energy transition. Nuclear energy could take three different pathways within the upcoming decades. In the main part of this paper - following a brief section on the current role of nuclear in the global energy supply (Chapter 2) - the characteristics of the three scenarios including the methodology underlying their quantification (Chapter 3), and the key findings of the identified future pathways (Chapter 4) are explained. Chapter 5 deals with a comparison of the global results of the EIA's International Energy Outlook 2019 (U.S. Energy Information Administration, September 2019) and the IEA's World Energy Outlook 2019 (International Energy Agency, November 2019). A conclusion is presented in Chapter 6.
