DUBLIN--(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/v2pm8t/global_nuclear_pow) has announced the addition of the "Global Nuclear Power Industry" report to their offering.)--Dublin - Research and Markets (
The beginning of the industrial age was traditionally powered by fossil fuel usage which was considered to be fairly abundant at the same time ignoring its effects. The second phase of the industrial era saw a growing realization of the escalating damages due to these fossil fuels and growing cost of mining them as well. The development of nuclear power albeit primarily for military purposes and later for civilian applications led to the identification of uranium as one of the rare resources in the world. December of 1951 brought the first 100 KW of pure, relatively clean nuclear power to the civilian world thereby kick starting society's campaign to slowly but decisively shift the global power resources to nuclear power based systems. Today the global electricity pie is fed almost 15.7% by nuclear power generation alone.
On a global scale, the big eight have a clear nuclear doctrine and defined roadmaps for how their society will produce and consume nuclear power. This circle is encircled by 56 more with civilian research facilities and 30 more which have around 435 commercial nuclear power plants with an installed capacity of 370 000 MWe.
This report is also an invaluable tool for gauging the gradual movement of the global energy policy towards a future enabled with nuclear energy which is comparatively cleaner and better managed for the benefit of all mankind.
