The following page lists all nuclear power stations that are larger than 1,000 MW in current net capacity. Those power stations that are smaller than 1,000 MW, and those that are only at a planning or proposal stage, may be found in regional lists at the end of the page or in the list of nuclear reactors. The list is based on figures from PRIS (Power Reactor Information System) maintained by International Atomic Energy Agency.

The Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, the world's largest fully operational nuclear power facility

This table lists all currently operational power stations with current net capacity over 1,000 MW. Some of these may have reactors under construction, but only current net capacity is listed. Capacity of permanently shut-down reactors is not included, but capacity of long-term shut-down reactors is included. Power stations with past net capacity over 1,000 MW and current net capacity under 1,000 MW are listed in third table.
