Data collected by the ISOE Asian Technical Centre.


Over the 70 NPPs covered data set sent by the ISOE North American Technical Centre: the data from Exelon utility (13 NPPs), Cook and Palo Verde NPPs have been excluded because these interlocutors provided information directly through the survey in 2017 (cf. Tab. 1); eight NPPs have reported “no longer [using] a value”; one NPP has indicated being under decommissioning; and three NPPs have reported no information.
