Nuclear power is one alternative energy to overcome the scarcity of fossil fuels because it is caused by natural changes, changes in weather and climate One of the energy generated from nuclear power is used as a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power as a reliable supplier of the electricity needs of a nation, so many countries to build nuclear reactors to meet energy needs. Here are 10 states with the largest nuclear reactors 10. India, 17 nuclear reactors India has 17 nuclear reactors and is the fourth largest energy source in India. If Germany would stop to consider nuclear energy as Fukushima disaster, but not with India. Inda is not affected by the accident or disaster in Fukushima. Even in the year 2010 India plans an ambitious project to develop nuclear energy until it reaches the capacity of 63 000 MW by the year 2023 9. Germany, 17 nuclear reactors Germany has 17 nuclear reactors and nuclear power in Germany in 2011 to supply the electricity needs of Germans 17.7%. This is down from 2010 that is equal to 22.4%. Development of nuclear technology in Germany a debate on the political agenda, especially the energy dispute between Russia and Belarus in 2007 and Fukushima accident in 2011. Both of these events makes the German government officially announced plans to abandon nuclear energy in 11 years. This was conveyed to the public announcement dated May 30, 2011 8. China, 17 nuclear reactors China as a country with the world's most densely populated country has 17 nuclear reactors. China's nuclear power plant was built as an alternative energy electricity coal already scarce. China has two nuclear power company that markets, the China National Nuclear Corporation in northeast China and the China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group in east China 7. South Korea, 18 nuclear reactors South Korea is a country which has the seventh largest nuclear reactor in the amount of 18 reactors. Nuclear energy in South Korea is very active in exporting nuclear technology to several countries such as Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and the PRC. South Korean nuclear power plants run on four areas, namely Yeonggwang, Kori, and Uljin Wolseong 6. Canada, 18 nuclear reactors Canada as one of the largest country has 18 nuclear reactors and in 2009 approximately 15% of Canada's electricity supply is generated by the power nulikir. In 2011 the Canadian government plans to build a new nuclear station, but the plan is still under discussion because of the disaster in Fukushima, the Canadian government ordered to review the safety and improvement in all operators of nuclear reactors 5. England, 19 nuclear reactors Britain has 19 nuclear reactors and nuclear power has resulted in one- sixth that has been supplying the electricity needs of England in 2012. Since its founding in 1956, Britain's "only" had two times that at the Windscale nuclear accident since the fire pile of plutonium on October 8, 1957 and at Sellafield as much as 20 tons of uranium and 160kg of plutonium leak because there is a crack pipe on April 19, 2005 4. Russia, 31 nuclear reactors Russia has 31 nuclear reactors and has a dark history with its nuclear reactor in Ukraine (formerly part of the SSR) reactor number four at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant of the year 1986. Now the Russian government to be more careful in managing its nuclear reactor. Russia in 2010 electricity supply met by nuclear power plants by 16% with a force of 170.1 TWh. The Russian government plans to increase its nuclear reactors from 31 to 59 reactors 3. Japan, 55 nuclear reactors Japan is the third country that has a lot of nuclear reactors, as many as 55 nuclear reactors. Nuclear energy seems to be a strategic national priority. As a country often hit by earthquakes, the damage a nuclear reactor to concern all the people of Japan and perhaps also the world. As events of March 11, 2011, which has destroyed the cooling systems of nuclear power plants in Fukushima in the tsunami. At least 140 thousand inhabitants, or within 20 km of the reactor in the evacuation 2. France, 59 nuclear reactors France is a country which has the second most nuclear reactors, as many as 59 nuclear reactors. France was forced to have as many nuclear reactors, the country has no energy resources of oil, as the country's energy resources. French nuclear power plants generate 540.6 TWh of energy and has met as many as 78.8% of electric energy needs in France, this figure is the highest percentage in the world. So that the electricity tariff in France is the cheapest in Europe A. United States, 104 nuclear reactors America is a country that has the most nuclear reactors, as many as 104 commercial nuclear reactors. A total of 69 is powered water reactors and 35 boiling water reactors. There are as many as 65 nuclear power plants that already have a license to operate. The plant produced 806.2 TWh of electrical energy and have supplied 19.6% of total electricity demand across the U.S. in 2008. In February 2012, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved the construction of two reactors, with the reasons for the tsunami disaster that struck Japan March 11, 2011 which had destroyed the nuclear reactor in Fukushima. However, this development plan opposition from environmental activists and anti-nuclear for reasons of public safety and the environment, especially with the disaster in Fukushima who had fully recovered.
