Nuclear energy is slowly shifting from the U.S. and Europe to Asia, which has the most nuclear power plants under construction in the world, said Rosatom Director General Sergei Kiriyenko. "Last year ... a forecast was made for a geographical shift in nuclear energy, with the countries in Asia taking a larger share. Today, we can clearly see that. While the majority of functioning nuclear power plants are located in Europe and the U.S., more than half of the nuclear power plants under construction are in Asian countries," he said.
