There are an estimated 438 nuclear reactors for electricity generation in the world, with dozens more under construction. Nuclear plants accounted for nearly 11% of global electric production in 2012. And just over a dozen countries rely on nuclear energy for at least 25% of their total electricity. So it’s clear nuclear power is a major contributor to the overall energy picture around the world. But how many people understand how the process of generating electricity at a nuclear plant really works? Our detailed animation does just that, by visualizing the production process for nuclear power.
