The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in its "Nuclear Safety Review" report for 2012 finds that demand for nuclear around the globe remains strong. It noted that countries such as China, India, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam still look to nuclear energy to meet their growing energy demands, while other countries have even accelerated plans for additional nuclear power.

"For example, France is building its first advanced reactor, with plans for a second already being drawn up; the Russian Federation seeks to double its nuclear energy output by 2020, with several reactors around the country currently under construction; and, the United Kingdom has plans to build additional reactor units," IAEA said.
