According to recent BMI Research, China’s rapid nuclear expansion will result in it overtaking the U.S. as the nation with the largest atomic power capacity by 2026. 

As the world’s second-largest economy is expected to triple its nuclear capacity by 100 gigawatts by 2026, making it the biggest market globally, said analysts. 

China has announced its commitment to boosting nuclear power and further reducing its reliance on coal which currently accounts for two-thirds of the country’s primary energy. 

At present, the country has 20 reactors under construction and another 176 planned or proposed, according to the World Nuclear Association.
