One of our readers recently passed along a couple of very interesting charts about nuclear energy as well as the nuclear energy report from which they came.

Data Sources: AGEB 2013

Data Source: EWEA 2013
global electricity production
Data Source: BP 2013
electricity capacity world
Data Source: IAEA-PRIS, BP, 2013
renewable energy nuclear investment
Data Source: BNEF 2013 and WNISR original research, 2013
nuclear share by country
Data Sources: IAEA-PRIS, MSC, 2013
nuclear construction times
Note: The bubble size is equivalent to the number of units started up in the given year. Data Sources: MSC based on IAEA-PRIS 2013

I think the charts speak for themselves, but I’m sure they will stimulate plenty of commentary, so have at it.
