World Nuclear Industry Report

Since 1992, the World Nuclear Industry Report has been documenting the global development of nuclear power as a source of energy. This year’s report was written by the independent renowned energy and nuclear energy expert Mycle Schneider. It was produced with the support of the MacArthur Foundation, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and the Heinrich Böll Foundation in France. The Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament, the Zukunftserbe Foundation, the Elektrizitätswerke Schönau (EWS), and the Swiss Energy Foundation are also among the project’s sponsors.
