VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. atomic agency cut its forecast for nuclear energy growth for a second year as the industry continued to feel the effect of the Fukushima disaster in Japan and said most of the expansion would be in Asia.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said its projection for global nuclear generating capacity by 2030 was down between one and nine percent compared with last year.

Against expectations before the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the projections are between eight and 16 percent lower.
