Today, nuclear energy is an important part of a global energy mix. In 2009, nuclear power supplied approximately 14% of the world‟s electricity. For the duration that nuclear power has been used to generate electricity, nuclear power plants have accumulated more than 14 000 reactor-years of operating experience. World energy demand is expected to more than double by 2050, and expansion of nuclear energy is a key to meeting this demand while reducing pollution and greenhouse gases. B hnjA growing number of countries are expressing interest in introducing nuclear power.

All data provider take part at the availability module, which means, they fill in datasets of about 30 different entries per unit – in case of nuclear plants monthly and all others yearly. The unavailability module requires event data of incidents with the consequence of a planned, unplanned unavailability or an external influence. Data can be entered into KISSY by internet, bulk import, csv-file or sending paper reports to VGB. Direct data input into KISSY by the provider is much faster and easier to avoid long processing times.

Figure 2-6 – Example of EAF Statistics (Note: Nuclear is worldwide data; all others are North American data) Load Factor (LF) Load Factor is the percent of maximum energy the unit actually did produce. With regards to EAF, EAF presents what the unit could produce; LF presents what the unit actually did produce. LF is equal to IEEE 762 Net Capacity Factor (NCF).
