Global Launch of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2022

Cover WNISR 2022"WNISRs are vital reality checks of the nuclear industry’s performance. Every yearly report is a barrier against utopian fantasies and wishful thinking, a tool to connect with reality." (Prof. Aviel Verbruggen)

The annual World Nuclear Industry Status Report (WNISR) provides a comprehensive overview of nuclear power plant data, including information on operation, production, construction, and decommissioning. The WNISR assesses the status of new-build programs in existing as well as in potential newcomer nuclear countries. The report also compares the development of nuclear power and renewable energy globally.
WNISR2022 contains a special focus chapter on Nuclear Power and War that assesses the safety and security challenges of nuclear power plants in war situations. Further focus chapters include the Fukushima Status Report providing an overview of ongoing onsite/offsite challenges of the 2011-disaster. The Decommissioning Status Report looks at the current situation of the now over 200 closed nuclear power reactors.

There will be a diverse line-up of distinguished speakers:

  • Jan Philipp Albrecht, President of the Heinrich Böll Foundation
  • Mycle Schneider, Coordinator WNISR
  • Christoph Pistner, Head of Division, Nuclear Engineering & Facility Safety, Öko-Institut, Darmstadt (representing Michael Sailer, former Chair of German Reactor Safety Commission, former CEO of Öko-Institut, WNISR Contributing Author)
