World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2020

World Nuclear Industry Status Report 31st Dec 2020.  The Global Launch of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2020

(WNISR2020) took place on 24 September 2020 with two online events.
The first was hosted by Chatham House, London, for timezones compatible with European watches. The second was hosted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in Washington D.C. for timezones that fit American clocks.
Greg Jaczko, former Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), commented during the second release event:
“First of all, I think the report is fantastic. It is probably the best collection of publicly available data for the nuclear industry. I have to say, I use a lot of the information quite often in talks and in teaching [at Princeton University]. So I think it is an excellent report, and I think it does paint a very clear picture of the status of the industry right now.
It is the data that does not necessarily comport with the story that the industry is wanting to tell right now on what the status of the industry is. So I think it is very valuable to have this kind of information and to have the accurate analysis and assessment. Really, I applaud the work, it is a tremendous effort.
Further online events around the WNISR2020 findings are planned with partners in Beijing (China), Beirut (Lebanon), Paris (France), Taipei (Taiwan), Zürich (Switzerland). Media attention has been extraordinary and many outlets continue to quote, refer to or reproduce graphics from WNISR2020.
