5. Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant, Japan (8.2 GW)

Built and brought into service in the 1980s, Kashiwazaki-Kariwa was the first nuclear power plant in the world to use an advanced boiling water reactor, a Generation III boiling water reactor. The plant is currently shut down as a part of Japan’s post-Fukushima security stress tests, but Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant operator for both Fukushima-Daiichi and Kashiwazaki-Kariwa, has requested permission to bring the plant back online.
