Graph measuring nuclear power generation in gigawatt hours from 1989 to 2001. Graph starts at approximately 550 then tends upward fluctuating between 550 and 750 before ending at just below 800 in 2001.
Note: Improvements in nuclear reactor safety have occurred at a time when nuclear power generation has increased significantly, from 455,000 gigawatt hours in 1987 to 767,000 gigawatt hours in 2001. Source: DOE/EIA Monthly Energy Review.
