There are 436 nuclear reactors in the world now, but 48 of them in Japan are shutdown. The Japanese reactors are older and smaller then the new reactors that are starting up. Japan has also operated their reactors with a lower capacity factor than many other nuclear reactors in the United States or South Korea or China.




China has 14 reactors and 11.9 GWe.
China at the end of 2012 will have 17 reactors and 14.7 GWe
China at the end of 2013 will have 24 reactors and 23.0 GWe
