Since the 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the potential of nuclear energy and its sustainability have been debated heavily both in the countries possessing nuclear energy facilities, and in those that aspire to develop them. Kazakhstan, as many other developing countries with growing energy needs, is considering introduction and integration of nuclear energy into its national energy mix.
