Country to Fall Short in Demand of Nuclear Power Supply
The country’s need for nuclear power is likely to exceed long term development target as the country is striving to lower its reliance on coal fired power in hopes to cut down air pollution. Demand for energy has already outstripped domestic supply sources as the country’s nuclear power industry is expanding as quickly than anticipated in the next twenty years to manage the energy structure better and to deal with environmental problems.
After the Fukushima crisis in Japan, China decided to reduce their target capacity for 2020 to 58 gigawatts from the planned 90 gigawatts. But even with the lower target, it will still make China the largest nuclear market. State owned nuclear companies are now hoping to move globally by selling domestic reactor designs and technology since China was intellectual property rights to third generation nuclear power technology or CAP1400.
This design is based on technology used in the AP 1000 reactor technology of Westinghouse Electric a United States based company and a unit of Japan’s Toshiba Corp.

The third generation nuclear technology features a passive safety system that has a water replenishment facility that will ensure the safety of the nuclear stations. The facilities can also be fortified against earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters.
