Global nuclear generation rose by 5 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe), or 1.1%, above the 10-year average growth rate of -0.7%
Nuclear energy consumption by region (million tonnes oil equivalent)
Growth in China (8 mtoe) and Japan (3 mtoe) was partially offset by declines in Europe (3 mtoe).
Data are based on gross generation and not accounting for cross-border electricity supply.
The primary energy value of nuclear power generation has been derived by calculating the equivalent amount of fossil fuel required to generate the same volume of electricity in a thermal power station, assuming a conversion efficiency of 38% (the average for OECD thermal power generation).
Data for the units are in million tonnes oil equivalent (mtoe) in the PDF. In addition the data are available in the Excel workbook in terawatt–hours (Twh).
