List of Nuclear Power Plants & Thermal Power Plants

By Shubham Verma|Updated : October 15th, 2020

Nuclear & Thermal power plants

Nuclear power is obtained from energy stored in the nuclei of atoms of naturally occurring radioactive elements like uranium and thorium. These fuels undergo nuclear fission in nuclear reactors and emit power. The greatest producers of nuclear power are the USA and Europe. In India, Rajasthan and Jharkhand have large deposits of Uranium.

Tarapur Atomic Power Plant-1 (TAPS-1) was the first Nuclear power plant in India.

Thermal electricity is generated by using coal, petroleum and natural gas. The thermal power stations use non-renewable fossil fuels for generating electricity. There are over 310 thermal power plants in India.

The major hazard of nuclear power generation is the storage and disposal of spent or used fuels – the uranium still decaying into harmful subatomic particles (radiations). Improper nuclear-waste storage and disposal result in environmental contamination.
