Worldwide, 440 nuclear reactors (primarily in United States, France, China) produced 2,546 TWh of electricity, providing a quarter of global low-carbon power, second only to hydropower. Four reactors joined the grid last year: one in Belarus, China, Slovakia, and the US. Countries like Bangladesh, Egypt, and Turkey began to build their first reactors. A quicker construction pace, secure supply chain, and surge in investment are vital to triple nuclear capacity and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

In this infographic, we cover key trends for the nuclear sector in 2023 and look ahead with CRA perspectives for global nuclear developments in 2024 and beyond.
