Nuclear Power Plants Worldwide

33 Countries Worldwide Rely on Nuclear Energy (As of 12/2013)

In December 2013, there were 437 nuclear power plants with an installed gross electrical output of 393 GWe in operation in 31 countries and 70 nuclear power plants with a gross electrical output of nearly 74 GWe under construction in 14 countries.

The net global electricity production from nuclear energy in 2012 was approx. 2,346.2 billion kWh. A cumulative figure of around 67,946 billion kWh has been generated since the first electricity production in a nuclear power plant - in the fast breeder EBR-1 in the USA on 20 December 1951.

Top Ten 2012

German NPP operators have managed to repeat the excellent result of 2011. Power plant units in Germany also achieved four of the ten best production results worldwide last year. In fourth place in the Top Ten is Isar 2 (12.08 billion kWh), followed immediately by Grohnde (11.69 billion kWh) and Emsland (11.43 billion kWh). The Neckarwestheim II plant occupies 10th place (11.13 billion kWh).
