World Nuclear Electricity in 2010

IEA electricity report for the OECD for 2010

OECD had 2187.0 TWH of nuclear electricity in 2010 (2.5% more than in 2009, 53 TWH more)

Japan had 284 TWH of nuclear in 2010 (6.4% more than in 2009)
Clearly in 2011 there will be a reduction in nuclear power in Japan with about 7 fewer reactors.

Germany had 133 TWH of nuclear in 2010 (4.0% more than in 2009). Germany will probably have less generation in 2011 as they have shutdown 7 reactors for 3 months.

France had 408 TWH of nuclear electricity in 2010 (4.6% more than in 2009)

Non-OECD nuclear generation in 2010

Russian nuclear power in 2010 produced 169.97 billion kWh, which is 4.2% more than the amount of electricity generated in 2009. Russia generated 152.8 billion kWh in 2009. The 2010 number is 17.2 billion kWh more than 2009.

Ukraine’s nuclear power plants generated 89.151 billion kWh in 2010 which is 7.5% more than in 2009 when 77.9 billion kWh was generated. Ukraine had a 11.2 billion kWh increase over 2009.

China nuclear power plants produced 66.9 billion kWh (up to November, 2010), up 4.8 percent year on year. China generated 65.7 billion kWh in 2009. So 7 billion kWh was probably generated in December, 2010. So China probably had an increase of 8.2 billion kWh over 2009.
