Nuclear power plants can produce a huge amount of power from a single unit. However, recent disasters in Japan have raised concerns over the safety of nuclear power.
Renewable sources other than hydroelectricity (solar power, wind energy, tidal power, etc.) are currently expensive to produce, though with advancements in technology their cost of production is coming down. Many governments around the world provide subsidies to offset the high cost and make their production economically feasible.
