This chapter provides a global analysis of the state of nuclear power in a post-Fukushima world, discussing key motives for new nuclear development, as well as looking at issues such as safety, technical development, public opinion, and waste management. Whilst some countries (e.g. China, India, Russia) are now embracing nuclear power as a central part of their strategies for meeting demand and/or reducing emissions, others are explicitly turning away (Germany) from this technology in favour of alternatives. The chapter draws on the extensive existing literature on nuclear power, and explores reasons for these differences in approach. It focuses primarily on contemporary analysis of national and global developments, but includes a brief review of the history of nuclear power development.

Keywords:   nuclear power, nuclear new-build, nuclear technologies, nuclear economics
