At one time, nuclear power was pushed aside due to negative public opinion and high investment costs but in the past few years it has seen a revival. 36 reactors are being built and there are projects for a hundred others. In 2008, 439 reactors are in working order and they produce electricity that accounts for 6.3 % of the world's energy. In France, nuclear power provides about 75% of the country's electricity.
