In the world investments into nuclear power significantly decreased
Global investments into nuclear power in 2017 were reduced by 45% in comparison with the level of previous year and made $17 billion under the influence of, in particular, the tendency to refusal of the NPP accruing in the world. The Nikkei newspaper with reference to data of the International Energy Agency reports about it on Thursday.

By its calculations, the total amount of investments in the power sphere of the planet in 2017 made $1,8 trillion, having reduced by 2% in comparison with previous year. Capital investments in the capacities based on use of mineral fuel in general remained at the previous level. However investments into construction of the new NPPs fell in the world, according to the newspaper, for 70%.

of Nikkei believes that many countries began to treat with mistrust nuclear power after accident on the Japanese nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in the spring of 2011. Increased after this requirement to safety lead also to serious rise in price of projects of construction of nuclear power plants that reduces their appeal, the newspaper notes.

It reminds that, in particular, Germany decided to refuse completely the NPP, in Switzerland following the results of a referendum it is forbidden to build new stations, France intends to reduce the dependence on nuclear power. Similar processes go and in Asia - Taiwan, for example, by 2025 intends to refuse the NPP, serious restrictions for their use are introduced in South Korea.
