Nuclear Power Plants Worldwide

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

In December 2013, there were 435 nuclear power plants with an installed gross electrical output of 398 GWe in operation in 31 countries and 70 nuclear power plants with a gross electrical output of nearly 74 GWe under construction in 15 countries.

The net global electricity production from nuclear energy in 2013 was approx. 2,364 billion kWh. A cumulative figure of around 70,310 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.
