Why Pakistan And India Should Join Nuclear Suppliers Group


Today, nuclear energy is the second-largest clean and low-carbon energy source after hydro. Currently, 450 nuclear reactors are producing 11% of the total electricity worldwide. In the next five to six years, when 60 reactors now under construction and 150-160 additionally planned are also commissioned, half of the power needs of the world will be met through nuclear energy.
