To electrical energy..........


A reactor converts nuclear energy to heat energy which converts water to steam, which drives a steam turbine, which converts rotational energy to electrical energy.

There are only about 500 nuclear power plants in the world today, and these are certainly base-load suppliers, which can output electrical energy over 24 hours.
