It should be pointed out that China is currently building more nuclear power plants than any other nation. Twenty-six new reactors are currently under construction, with over 50 more planned, and 120 more than that proposed. India also has a large nuclear build program going on.




You should not rely on this world-nuclear list of nuclear power in operation/construction/planned. The data is old and misleading. Look at the following errors in their table:

1. Japan 50 reactors operating - actually only 2
2. China will not build all 50 planned or 120 proposed reactors
3. USA 104 reactors operating - actually only 100

Fact is that new nuclear plants coming on line are largely balanced by old plants being retired.
