The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2021 (WNISR2021) has been elaborated by an international team of 13 interdisciplinary experts from seven countries. WNISR2021 has been launched globally by video-conference on 28 September 2021 (see video and PPT). Since then, there have been launch events in the Czech Republic, and in Taiwan. Further events, briefings and/or releases of translated summary versions are planned in Beijing, Brussels, and Paris.
WNISR2021 contains a major 33-page analysis of the status of the Fukushima disaster from an onsite/offsite perspective, and on legal, health and economic issues, as well as a 25-page assessment of the nuclear power sector in Japan. However, the overall international context is crucial to understand the significance of developments in Japan. It contains global assessment of operation, construction, decommissioning of nuclear power plants worldwide, and country-by-country analysis of nuclear power programs. This year, the report also contains chapters on Small Modular Reactors (SMR), nuclear power and climate change resilience, nuclear power and criminal energy, and nuclear power versus renewable energy.
The Japan Launch event speakers include WNISR’s Coordinator Mycle Schneider, Kiyoshi Kurokawa, Chairman of the National Diet of Japan Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission, as well as Tomas Kåberger, Chair of Executive Board of Renewable Energy Institute.
We look forward to your participation.
