Nuclear power, although controversial, produces approximately 17% of the
world's electricity. There are over 400 nuclear power plants throughout the
world. Of those, about 100 are in the USA. Many countries depend on nuclear
power for their electricity supply, some more than others. For example;
France is reputed to generate approximately 75% of its requirements from
nuclear plants and the USA about 15%.
