Compiled of individual case studies of the nuclear programs of thirty countries, this book provides a detailed assessment on the state of global nuclear power in 2008. It presents an overview of nuclear power in nuclear renaissance countries, nuclear phase-out countries, and industrializing countries, grouping each country studied in one of those categories. The introductory chapter offers a comprehensive summary of findings and data. Chapters contain Individual studies as well as country-specific data in graphs and tables. The evidence points to a decline of overall use of nuclear power globally. The papers included were drawn from those presented at the annual meetings of the REFORM (Restructuring Energy Systems For Optimal Resource Management) group of energy economists at Schloss Leopoldskron, Salzburg Austria, since 2002; REFORM is an informal group of scientists who focus on analyzing the political transformation of energy systems and energy policy. Additional papers from other experts were included to cover countries not studied by the group.
