100% Growth of nuclear sector by 2030

27 Oct 2015

The use of nuclear energy will increase between 23 percent and 100 percent by 2030, the annual report by the International Atomic Energy Agency predicts.

Worldwide, 437 reactors are operating and 67 reactors are under construction. The United Arab Emirates last year built its first ever Waste-to-Energy facility in Abu Dhabi. The site will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1.5 million tonnes per year, supply more than 20,000 households with electricity and play a key role in achieving its 80% landfill diversion target.

£1.5 trillion is already set aside for the development of new reactors across the world, with new calls for manufacturers to deliver a wide range of products and services.
