Nuclear power is not a significant contributor the Pakistan's energy production, accounting for just about two percent of the country's electricity mix. Having three nuclear power plants, Pakistan imports its enriched fuel from China.
After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant accident, the Pakistani government ordered a safety check for all the power plants in the country. However, there was no change in the country's policy to develop nuclear power in the coming years.
By the year 2030, the Pakistani government plans to increase its generation capacity by 160,000 MWe, adding four more Chinese nuclear reactors to the present three.
In this industry scenario, Taiyou Research analyzes the Nuclear Power Market in Pakistan.
Divided into five chapters, this in-depth research offering from Taiyou Research is a complete analysis of the nuclear power market in Pakistan.
The report deals with an overview of the global power market which is consistently rising due to rapid industrialization resulting in ever increasing demand for power. 66% of global power market is dominated by thermal power sources viz. coal and petroleum but stringent emission norms and depletion of sources is driving global attention towards renewable technology and nuclear power with a 7.5% market share is going to play a major role in future.
In spite of the Chernobyl disaster and the more recent Fukushima setback, the global installed nuclear capacity is likely to increase at a CAGR of nearly 4% and nuclear generation at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2011-2020. In comparison to other technologies the nuclear power has a nominal impact on greenhouse gas emission.
