“Existing NPPs to Enter Age of 80-Year Operations” JAIF Annual Survey Says

Each year, the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum, Inc. (JAIF) presents a survey titled “World Nuclear Power Plants.” This year's survey is compiled from data as of January 1, 2020 based on replies to questionnaires sent to electric power companies and nuclear-related organizations around the world.

Total Nuclear Capacity of Operating NPPs Decreases for First Time in 6 Years As of January 1, 2020, there were 437 operating nuclear power plants (NPPs) around the world, with a total generating capacity of 411,924 MW. Total nuclear capacity, which had been increasing since 2013, decreased for the first time in six years. Six had outputs less than 1,000 MW (total generating capacity of 4,300 MW) and had been operated for more than 40 years (since the 1970s): two in the U.S. and one each in South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan. The other six closed units totaling 6,430 MW of generating capacity had begun commercial operations in the 1980s and been operated less than 40 years: five in Japan and one in Germany.
