The annual World Nuclear Industry Status Report (WNISR) provides a comprehensive overview of nuclear power plant data, including information on operation, production, construction, and decommissioning. The WNISR assesses the status of new-build programs in existing as well as in potential newcomer nuclear countries. The report also compares the development of nuclear power and renewable energy globally.

WNISR2022 contains a special focus chapter on Nuclear Power and War that assesses the safety and security challenges of nuclear power plants in war situations. Further focus chapters include the Fukushima Status Report providing an overview of ongoing onsite/offsite challenges of the 2011-disaster. The Decommissioning Status Report looks at the current situation of the now over 200 closed nuclear power reactors.
