According to the World Nuclear Association, the majority of reactors under construction in 2013 can be found in Asia where rapid economic growth has fuelled demand for electricity. This is particularly evident in China and India where 28 and 7 reactors are under construction respectively. In China, these will deliver 27,790 MWe (net) while India’s 7 will generate 4,824 MWe (net) of electricity.
Russia has 9 reactors under construction in 2013, the second highest total worldwide. India rounds off the top three. South Korea has 5 reactors under construction while the United States has 3, completing the top five.
