Did you know?

  1. According to the latest data from the International Atomic Energy Agency, there are 444 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, most of them located in the United States. Krško Nuclear Power Plant has been operating since 1984.
  2. Nuclear power plants worldwide produce around 17% of all electricity. The Krško Nuclear Power Plant annually produces over 5 billion kWh of electricity, which represents approximately 40% of the total electricity produced in Slovenia.
  3. Calculations show that the use of nuclear energy annually saves about 800 million tons of CO2. As many as 200 million cars could be withdrawn from the roads for the same amount of money.
