The domestic nuclear power industry is in the midst of a decades-long decline. The causes are many.

Evidence of this can be found in the usual practice of extending a nuclear plant´s life.

Concerns about climate change, security of supply, and depleting fossil fuel reserves have spurred a revival of interest in nuclear power generation in Europe and North America, while other regions continue or initiate an expansion.
