Stalled Nuclear Construction In China Shows Signs Of Life
From Nuclear Street
Roughly a year since temporarily shutting down its massive nuclear construction program in response to the Fukushima Daiichi accidents in Japan, China’s government and industries are making overtures that new build may soon resume.
On Thursday, the BBC reported that the Chinese government is expected to announce a new, albeit smaller, plan for reactor construction soon. Likewise, Caixin Online noted that experts at a recent forum in Beijing emphasized the importance of faster inland reactor construction in light of the country’s accelerating energy demand.
