New Power Stations

The world’s first large-scale nuclear power station was completed at Calder Hall in the UK in 1956.

Today there are 131 reactors in Europe, supplying over a quarter of the continent’s electricity, without producing carbon emissions, and providing 500,000 highly-skilled jobs.

The nuclear-building program has started again in many countries. Some countries are still against nuclear however.
