Germany has a total installed capacity of 161,373 MW with nuclear capacity of 18,373 MW as of 2010. Germany currently has nine nuclear power reactors operating in the country. The nuclear generation was 133 billion kWh as of 2010. The nuclear energy contribution was around 21.9% of countrys electricity generation in 2010. The nuclear reactors are of Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) and Boiling Water Reactors (BWR) type. Nuclear energy plays an important role in the Germanys electricity generation mix. RWE Power AG, Vattenfall AB and EON Kernkraft are the some of the key players in the Germanys nuclear energy industry. Currently there are no nuclear power reactors that are under construction in the country. The current energy policy of the country is favoring renewable sources for power generation. As of June 2011 scheduled shutdown of eight of the nuclear power reactors were carried out, which will decline the contribution of nuclear in the countrys power generation during the forecast period 20112020.
