Construction’s started on a nuclear plant in Shandong province, south of Beijing. China now has the most plants under construction, which has critics in and out of the country concerned about safety. This is undoubtedly fueled by the recent Fukushima disaster, which did temporarily slow construction. However, the sector is making a comeback, and power output may rise 20x by 2030. China is putting more money into regulatory institutions and making sure plants use internationally proven designs. Personally, I believe that this growth is good for China, since it provides an alternative to coal and ultimately will help with air pollution. Currently less than 2% of China’s energy is from nuclear and I feel they could also benefit from diversification.
