How much nuclear power are we planning on adding to our grid in the next 5 years?

    The construction rate of nuclear power plants often experiences delays and varies greatly from one plant to the next. This is because each nuclear plant is a unique device constructed in its own way, they are not all based on a single model. The danger they pose if not correctly examined is also a concern so they must go through dozens of safety checks to become active and estimations on their completion may be far from accurate. Due to the climate crisis, many people in government as well as environmentalists are reevaluating their potential as non-carbon emitting energy sources. Consequently, there are applications for 26 new plants. Today nuclear energy forms 20% of our energy usage. The next planned plant to go into operation is expected in 2013. The new design can produce 1,154 megawatts of electricity.
