China to resume inland n-power development

  • China is likely to restart its nuclear power program in inland areas in the next five years to meet increasing demands.

    Over ten provinces have plans for nuclear power projects, with 31 proposals having already passed the initial-feasibility test.

    China aims to lift its operational nuclear power installed capacity to 58 million kilowatts by 2020, and those under construction will reach 30 million kilowatts according to the 13th Five-Year Plan, which will be released in October. (Source: IANS)
