The successful economic deployment of nuclear in countries like China, Korea and Russia are ignored. We even have a good example that new countries can successfully build nuclear plants with the start up of the Barrakah nuclear power plant in the UAE. So what are the core differences between those successful projects and the speed bumps experienced by projects like...
Yes Matt! Most of the European countries have been gradually replacing electricity generation from coal or nuclear with renewables and natural gas. Valuable and comparable data can be found in the European Commission’s latest statistical pocketbook ‘eu energy in figures’ of 2020.
EU27’s gross electricity generation by fuel, share of total (%): Solid Fossil Fuels, Peat, Oil Shale & Sands: 35,8 (1990) - 20,8 (2018) Oil & Petroleum Products: 8,3 - 1,9 Natural Gas & Manufactured Gases: 9,5 - 17,8 Nuclear: 32 - 25,9 Renewables & Biofuels: 14,1 - 32,9 Eurostat, May 2020.
In terms of new capacity of note, it really seems like these are the three players we'll be dealing with for much of the decade-- the question marks to play out are at what relative scale they get built out and what retirements (coal vs. nuclear vs. gas) will they be jumping in for.
