Nuclear power consumption per capita by country

Who is using nuclear energy? – Nuclear energy consumption per capita by country

 

Nuclear power consumption per capita by country

 

The above graph shows the nuclear power consumption per capita by country for the year 2003. The raw data was taken from bp.com and converted in kg oil equivalents. To convert into kWh per person per year, multiply the value by the factor 11.628 (e.g. 100 kg oil equivalents = 1'162.8 kWh).

This graph will certainly change during the next 10 to 20 years because several countries decided not to replace retired nuclear power plants any more and to phase-out nuclear energy. In the European Union, 17 out of the 27 member countries do either have no nuclear power plants or have already decided to sooner or later phase out this technology (among them are Sweden, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Austria and Germany). Switzerland is also quite unlikely to rebuild nuclear power plants since any new nuclear plant needed to get acceptance in a public vote.

You can also find on this site graphs and tables about the number of nuclear power plants by country , energy consumption per capita by country and the predicted energy consumption by the year 2050 .
