Its 20 reactors in operation contributed only 1.2 percent of the countrys energy use in 2013, much lower than the worlds average of 9.8 percent.Lin Boqiang, director of the Xiamen-based China Center for Energy Economic Research, said the central government has sent a clear signal that it is hastening the approval process of nuclear plants, which can increase clean power generation.Considering that wind and solar power still account for a small percentage of the countrys power generation, nuclear power is the most effective choice for China, said Lin. Canadians sign nuclear MOUHunan reactor to resume construction  Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesTwo nuclear firms seek to invest in new UK reactorsChina builds up nuclear power gridCanadians sign nuclear MOUHunan reactor ready to resume constructionNuclear security law in the works: LawmakerChinas nuclear companies eyeing massive South African tenderPhotoTop 10 riskiest cities in the worldWorld premieres at Beijing auto showBig stars shine at Auto ChinaA day at the Foxconn frontlineAuto China 2014 is set to open in BeijingA&F plans over 100 new stores in China within 10 yearsChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerA knowledge economy that works with ideas Thrifty businesswoman finds balance between home and careerMost ViewedTodays Top NewsReed Exhibitions strengthen operation in ChinaWorld premieres at Beijing auto showChina streamlines tax break procedures for SMEsChina to maintain high grain output in 2014-2023Big stars shine at Auto ChinaWhen big data can lead to big profitE-racing may change shape of transportTycoons lead way on infoHot TopicsTaxi booking appInternet finance12306.cnHousing priceWeChat4GChina MobileIPOs resumptionEditors PicksWorld premieres at Beijing auto show Chinese Internet firms eyeing IPOs in US Animal Magic Top 10 countries with highest GDP in 2013 SpecialsGDP slowdown doesnt surprise manyGlobal business leaders weigh in on reformsBillionaires speak out on reform roles…Media : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Partners : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Portals : |||Sina|Sohu|Tom|Tencent|NetEase|Hexun|Organizations : |China US Focus|FrenCham|CPAFFC|CPIFA||eBeijing|AmCham|SwissCham BJ|…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
