The energy content of relevant materials and world energy resources are briefly discussed. A short review is given of fundamental aspects of uranium enrichment and the disposal of radio-active material as part of the conventional nuclear fuel cycle. Alternative energy production systems for the RSA are suggested. These are based on the spectrum of choices presented by the nuclear energy continuum of nuclear fission, fusion and spallation particle accelerator systems.
