World nuclear generation in 2010 probably about 2640 to 2650 TWH

Previously we had looked at nuclear power generation in Russia, Ukraine and India up to about October, 2010

Russian nuclear power in 2010 produced 169.97 billion kWh, which is 4.2% more than the amount of electricity generated in 2009. Russia generated 152.8 billion kWh in 2009. The 2010 number is 17.2 billion kWh more than 2009.

Ukraine's nuclear power plants generated 89.151 billion kWh in 2010 which is 7.5% more than in 2009 when 77.9 billion kWh was generated. Ukraine had a 11.2 billion kWh increase over 2009.



China nuclear power plants produced 66.9 billion kWh (up to November, 2010), up 4.8 percent year on year. China generated 65.7 billion kWh in 2009. So 7 billion kWh was probably generated in December, 2010. So China probably had an increase of 8.2 billion kWh over 2009.

The OECD is likely heading to about 35-50 billion kWh more than 2009

India is probably at 22 Billion kWh in 2010 which is 7 billion kWh more than in 2009.


The WNA reported 2008 world nuclear generation at 2601 TWH and 2009 at 2558 TWH.

2007 had world nuclear generation of 2608 TWH and 2006 had 2658 TWH per the World Nuclear Association.

The IEA is about 120 TWH more than the WNA numbers, and I would guess that they are including the nuclear generation from submarines and aircraft carriers and other non-commercial nuclear power.

The IEA reports 2008 world nuclear generation at 2731 TWH
The IEA reports 2007 world nuclear generation at 2719 TWH and World generation 2006 at 2793 TWH
