World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2018


The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2018 (WNISR2018) provides a comprehensive overview of nuclear power plant data, including information on age, operation, production and construction. The WNISR assesses the status of new-build programs in current nuclear countries as well as in potential newcomer countries. WNISR2018 has put particular attention to seven Focus Countries representing about two thirds of the global fleet.

The Fukushima Status Report gives an overview of the standing of onsite and offsite issues seven years after the beginning of the catastrophe.

The Decommissioning Status Report for the first time provides an overview of the current state of nuclear reactors that have been permanently closed.

A new chapter looks into interdependencies between civil and military uses of nuclear infrastructures.

The Nuclear Power vs. Renewable Energy chapter provides global comparative data on investment, capacity, and generation from nuclear, wind and solar energy.

Finally, as usual, Annex 1 presents a country-by-country overview of the remaining countries operating nuclear power plants.
