Strong Nuclear Policies
Many countries have a strong commitment to nuclear power. Among these are China, India, the United States, Russia and Japan, which together represent half of world population. France, with 60 million people, obtains over 75% of its electricity from nuclear power and is the world’s largest net exporter of electricity. Other nations – such as Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Finland, South Korea, South Africa, Ukraine and several other countries in Central and Eastern Europe – are acting to increase the role of nuclear power in their economies. Key developing nations without nuclear power – such as Indonesia, Egypt and Vietnam – are considering this option.
Nuclear power provides energy independence and security of supply.
