Nuclear power has been used for many years for generating electricity across the world. However, with the recent Fukushima nuclear disaster, the safety of nuclear power has been called into question, with many countries deciding to phase out nuclear power completely by 2020. With concerns rising about the use of conventional thermal energy sources, many are questioning whether one can truly phase out and finish off the dependence on nuclear energy.

While the debate rages on, there is no doubt that the global nuclear power industry has been experiencing tremendous growth in recent years. With nearly two decades of technical advancements, the nuclear power industry has made tremendous development in reactor technology, safety measures, and nearly zero carbon emissions from nuclear power plants. All these factors have made nuclear power an attractive option for generating power.

Before the Fukushima nuclear disaster, there was a marked shift towards supporting the growth of nuclear power in many countries. Meeting the growing demand for energy across the world was one of the primary factors driving the growth of nuclear power.
