Annual quantities of spent fuel, storage and capacity in EU countries between 2003 and 2005

No data are available for Lithuania or Slovenia (both have nuclear power plants). Other Member States not listed in the above figure do not have nuclear power plants. Italy phased out commercial nuclear power in 1987.
