    Nuclear energy to provide 10% of China's electricity by 2035

    September 26, 2023 -


      By Li Hongyang | | Updated: 2023-09-26 15:05

      Nuclear energy is expected to supply around 10 percent of China's electricity by 2035, Wang Binghua, director of the China Nuclear Energy Association's nuclear energy public communication committee, told on Monday.

      That would align China's nuclear power generation with the global average and lead to a reduction of about 920 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, he said.

      Wang said China's installed nuclear power capacity should reach around 400 million kilowatts by 2060, providing about 18 percent of the nation's electricity and approaching the average of developed countries.

      When nuclear energy's utilization in heating and transportation was also considered, it was expected to account for about 25 percent of carbon emission reductions, he said.

      "In the context of achieving both the carbon goals and ensuring economic growth, nuclear energy has demonstrated its irreplaceable advantages, providing significant strategic support for China's economic and social development," Wang told at the 6th China Nuclear Energy Public Communication and Exchange Conference in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.
