M.N.H. Comsan - Worldwide, in 2007, there are 439 operating nuclear reactors working in 31 countries with 361 GWe installed power representing ~17% of world demand on electricity. Most of these reactors were designed and developed during the 1960s. For almost five decades, the nuclear power industry has been developing and improving nuclear design and technology towards safer and more reliable operation. With the increase of world demand on energy, 136 new reactors are needed just to maintain the nuclear energy share at the same level by 2025.

Richard Rhodes and Denis Beller describe the need for nuclear power.The world needs more energy. Energy multiplies human labor, increasing productivity. It builds and lights schools, purifies water, powers farm machinery, drives sewing machines and robot assemblers, stores and moves information. World population is steadily increasing, having passed six billion in 1999. Yet one-third of that number — two billion people — lack access to electricity. Development depends on energy, and the alternative to development is suffering: poverty, disease, and death.
