Nuclear Energy Worldwide

The percentage of nuclear energy in the global electricity mix has been fairly stable between 10 and 11 per cent in recent years, but fell below the 10 per cent mark in 2022 for the first time in 40 years. Nevertheless, reactors are being built in a number of countries, new reactor concepts are being developed and the operating lives of existing reactors are being extended. The most important argument is usually the low CO2 balance of the base-load energy form. With our country dossiers, which we will publish here in the coming weeks and months, we would like to give an overview of the current developments in Europe and neighbouring countries. A good introduction and overview of the overall situation is provided by our dossier "Nuclear Energy Worldwide", which we update at the beginning of each year.

In which country are new nuclear power plants and research reactors being built? Which countries are focusing on new reactor concepts? What is the current starting position with regard to electricity production? And against what political and legal background are the current decisions for the construction of new plants made? You will find answers to these questions in our dossiers.
