Human dependence on electricity has increased greatly over the years and, as a result, access to energy resources has become a priority in most countries, both developed and developing. With this expansion comes the need for government involvement in the planning and expansion of energy resources, especially when it comes to nuclear energy. This study presents a review of Brazil’s nuclear power program with the Angra 1 and Angra 2 power plants and the construction of the Angra 3 plant. It examines the Plano Nacional de Energia (National Energy Plan – NEP-2030) which aims, among other objectives, to implement a revised nuclear energy program, including the construction of new power plants in locations yet to be determined throughout the country.
