Nuclear power: up in India, down in Japan – an annotated graphic

An infographic double-header today, as we mull on nuclear power’s varied fortunes in certain parts of the globe.

In India, they’re planning a huge increase in nuclear power, with plans to build 48 new reactors by 2032. Over in Japan, understandably chastened by the Fukushima experience, they are being more circumspect about future use of nuclear, electing to close down some power stations and stop using nuclear power altogether during the latter 2030s.

That said, those nuclear power stations already under construction in Japan will be completed, presumably primed to deliver 20 years of nuclear power.
