This article is about nuclear fission and fusion power sources primarily.
For commercial quantities of nuclear energy attained from nuclear decay,

reactors are located inside the rectangular containment buildings towards
the front of the cooling towers. The power station produces 63 million
units of electricity per day.

*Nuclear power*, or *Nuclear energy*, is the use of exothermic nuclear
processes,^[1] to generate useful heat and electricity. The term includes
the following heat producing processes, nuclear fission, nuclear decay and
nuclear fusion. Presently the nuclear fission of elements in the actinide
series of the periodic table produce the vast majority of nuclear energy in
the direct service of humankind, with nuclear decay processes, primarily in
the form of geothermal energy, and radioisotope thermoelectric generators,
in niche uses making up the rest. Nuclear (fission) power stations, that is
excluding the contribution from naval nuclear fission reactors, provided
about 5.7% of the world's energy and 13% of the world's electricity, in
2012.^[2] In 2013, the IAEA report that there are 437 operational
