Nuclear Power Projections: Estimates for the Period up to 2030

Published Date: 8 March 2010

The future growth of energy, electricity and nuclear power up to the year 2030 is presented as low and high estimates in order to encompass the uncertainties associated with the future. These estimates should be viewed as very general growth trends whose validity must constantly be subjected to critical review. Historical growth in global nuclear power capacity (blue) estimates of future growth according to the IAEA’s low projection (dark green) and high projection (light green). THE EVOLUTION OF THE IAEA’S LOW PROJECTION SINCE 2003. The bars grouped near 2020 show the projections for 2020 made in different years as indicated in the legend. Similarly the bars 
			grouped near 2030 show the projections for 2030 made in the years indicated in the legend. THE EVOLUTION OF THE IAEA’S HIGH PROJECTION SINCE 2003. The bars grouped near 2020 show the projections for 2020 made in different years as indicated in the legend. Similarly the bars 
			grouped near 2030 show the projections for 2030 made in the years indicated in the legend.
