Nuclear China in a Post Fukushima World

Nuclear China in a Post Fukushima World

Tim Daiss, Energy Tribune
The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) anticipated World Energy Outlook, which projects energy trends to 2035, was released on November 12.In its report the IEA states that global nuclear generating capacity will reach some 580 GWe in 2035, 10 percent less than the IEA forecasted a year ago.However as often is the case, China bucks the trend. The report states that while “ambitions for nuclear have been scaled back” by some countries following Japan’s Fukushima disaster in 2011, capacity is projected to rise, led by China, Korea, India and Russia.http://www.energytribune.com/65641/nuclear-china-post-fukushima-world
