China on track to becoming number one in nuclear energy

14 Mar 2016

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, China has 31 operational nuclear power plants and another 24 which are under construction.

China’s National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) now wants to build an additional 30 nuclear power stations – not only in China, but also in bordering states. CNNC has already exported six nuclear reactors overseas, although this number is expected to rise within the next 5 years.

At present, Eastern Asia leads the world in nuclear reactor construction, which is more than double than other regions such as Eastern and Central Europe.
