As of November 2016 there is a total of 186 nuclear power plant units with an installed electric net capacity of 163,685 MWe in operation in Europe (five there of in the Asian part of the Russian Federation) and 15 units with an electric net capacity 13.696 MWe were under construction in six countries.

 

Do you see the number of nuclear power plants continuing to grow in 2017? Which European countries are working to expand their capacity to generate nuclear energy?
