Nuclear Energy

France is the only country that uses nuclear energy as its primary source of electricity. Whilst some countries, including Australia, are still opposed to nuclear power, 30 other countries are currently operating nuclear power stations and a few more like Vietnam, Poland and Bangladesh are in the planning process of developing nuclear power stations.

The United States and France are the top producers of nuclear energy. The table below displays the countries currently producing nuclear energy.
