But nuclear power generated is increasing every year.
After Fukushima the estimated rate of increase was reduced, but the
total is still increasing.


Globally, nuclear power capacity is projected to rise in the New
Policies Scenario from 393 GW in 2009 to 630 GW in 2035."
Nuclear power capacity worldwide is increasing steadily, with over 60
reactors under construction in 13 countries.
Most reactors on order or planned are in the Asian region.
