China is planning to have 104 nuclear reactors in next 20 years, similar to the current level of US, Zhang Guobao, chairman National Energy Administration said. Presently, China has 11 working reactors with 9.1 gigawatts (GW) of capacity, representing around 2% of the country's total power output in 2008. The government of China is on the edge to increase its target for nuclear power capacity to 75 GW by 2020 from 40 GW, according to sources.
Zhang Guobao also said that China’s wind power installed capacity will exceed 20 GW in 2010, and will increase it to 100 GW by 2020.
Some people might be surprised, but I believe it will be definitely realized; nothing surprising, Zhang Guobao said.
