原子力発電部門は、今後10年間で電力需要の増加が見込まれています。世界の累積設備容量は、2017年の392ギガワットから、2030年までに536ギガワットまで拡大し、CAGR (複合年間成長率) で、2.4％の成長が予測されています。
The nuclear power sector is expected to grow over the next decade as demand for electricity rises. The global cumulative installed nuclear power capacity was 392 gigawatts (GW) in 2017 and is expected to reach 536 GW by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4%.
Climate change concerns have raised awareness of the need to reduce use of fossil fuels in favor of low-emission power sources. Nuclear power is the readily available large-scale alternative to fossil fuels for the production of a continuous and reliable supply of electricity for meeting base-load demand. China, the world's top greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter, is very keen on reducing its emissions; hence, it is deploying nuclear technology as part of its power mix.
Nuclear technology is a major base-load power-generating source and accounted for 10.5% of global power generation in 2017. The nuclear power sector is growing in many countries as demand for electricity increases. Some 31 countries are currently operating nuclear reactors for their electricity generation. Countries with significant nuclear power capacity are: the US, France, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, Canada, and Ukraine, with more than 10 gigawatts (GW) installed capacity each. Germany, the UK, Sweden, India, Spain, Belgium, and Taiwan have 5-10 GW installed nuclear power capacity each.
