Worldmap of all nuclear power stations (2006)

The following page lists all nuclear power stations that are larger than 1,000 MW in current net capacity. Those power stations that are smaller than 1,000 MW, and those that are only at a planning or proposal stage, may be found in regional lists at the end of the page. The list is based on figures from PRIS (Power Reactor Information System) maintained by International Atomic Energy Agency.

In service[edit]

This table lists currently operational nuclear power stations. Capacity of permanently shut-down reactors is not included, but capacity of long-term shut-down reactors is included.
