Notes:
^a Post-Fukushima shutdown of eight reactors. On 15 March 2011, the German Government decided to close seven nuclear power plants built before 1980 along with the Krümmel nuclear power plant for a duration of three months.[23] The temporary shutdown was changed into permanent shutdown by the German parliament on 30 June 2012. The remaining nine plants that stayed operational were given new decommissioning dates.[24]

    • RA - Reaktor A (1956–2002) - 6.5 MW heavy water moderated and cooled research reactor
    • RB - Reaktor B (1958-...) - At the very beginning the RB reactor was designed and constructed as an unreflected zero power heavy water - natural uranium critical assembly. First criticality was reached in April 1958. Later, the 2% enriched metal uranium fuel and 80% enriched UO2 fuel were obtained and used in the reactor core. Modifications of the reactor control, safety and dosimetry systems (1960, 1976, 1988) converted the RB critical assembly to a flexible heavy water reflected experimental reactor with 1 W nominal power, operable up to 50 W. Several coupled fast-thermal systems were designed and constructed at RB reactor in the early 1990s, for the research in fast reactors physics.

As of 8 December 2014, the Swiss parliament has voted to limit the operational life-time of Beznau I & II to no more than 60 years, and to enshrine a ban of constructing new reactors in the Constitution. However, this decision still has to pass the Council of States and it is likely that a referendum will be taken against such amendment. In addition, an Initiative of limiting the life-span of all nuclear reactors to 45 years will have to be voted upon the Swiss, irrespective of whether the legislature will actually enforce the constitutional amendment or not.[38]
