    "Our irrational energy structure is causing serious pollution
    and Russia, with local development based largely ongreenhouse problems," said Gu Zhongmao, a professor at the French element.China Institute of Atomic Energy, a government-affiliated research center. The latest technology acquisition has been fromsituation provoked years of internal debate about nuclear power as an answer, he said, before the USA (via Westinghouse, owned by Japan's Toshiba)country's leaders finally came to a consensus.
    Pros:
    Nuclear power plants, unlike those that run on fossil fuels, release few greenhouse gases
    Disadvantages
    “At the current stage, if we are not fully aware of the sector’s over-rapid expansions, it will threaten construction quality
    and France. The Westinghouse AP1000 isoperation safety of nuclear power plants,” Li Ganjie, the main basisdirector of technology developmentChina’s National Nuclear Safety Administration, said in a speech this year. Philippe Jamet, the immediate future.director of the division of nuclear installation safety at theInternational Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, said that China had welcomed foreign inspectors at its reactors and that “they show pretty good operations safety.”
    But he added that the international agency was concerned about whether China would have enough nuclear inspectors with adequate training to handle the rapid expansion.
    “They don’t have very much staff, when you compare their staff with how many they will need,” Mr. Jamet said.
    Cons:
    produce waste that can be dangerously radioactive for thousands of years.
    China is placing many of its nuclear plants near large cities, potentially exposing tens of millions of people to radiation in the event of an accident.

    China is not known to have had a serious accident in 15 years of large-scale electricity production. Chinese government scientists have begun boring holes deep into granite in the first steps toward building what could become the world's largest tomb for nuclear waste.

    Nuclear Power Control
    China has two rival state-owned nuclear power giants: the China National Nuclear Corporation, mainly in northeastern China, and the China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, mainly in southeastern China.
    Global Impact
    As governments worldwide look at nuclear power as a possible answer to global warming, China has embarked on a nuclear-plant construction binge that eventually could exceed the one the United States undertook during the technology's heyday in the 1960s.The last country to carry out such a rapid nuclear expansion was the United States in the 1970s, in a binge of reactor construction that ended with the Three Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania in 1979. Nuclear
    Future
    Under plans already announced, China intends to spend $50 billion to build 32 nuclear plants by 2020. Some analysts say the country will build 300 more by the middle of the century. That's not much less than the generating power of all the nuclear plants in the world today.

    Nuclear Energy in China
    IntroductionSince the year 2005, nuclear power has produced an estimated 6.3% of the world's energy and around 15% of the world's electricity. The United States, France, and Japan have been the three biggest contributors on the grounds that they made up 56.5% of this nuclear generated electricity. However, China may soon become included amonsgst these three countries because it has it's eyes set on a nuclear future. Therefore the energy produced from controlled nuclear reactions has become integrated into China's infrastructure. Present day china has 9,100 megawatts of nuclear capacity and has approved the construction of additional reactors to increase output to 25,400 megawatts. Mainland China has 11 nuclear power reactors in commercial operation, 20 under construction, and more about to start construction soon.Additional reactors are planned, including some of the world's most advanced, to give a sixfold increase in nuclear capacity to at least 60 GWe or possibly more by 2020, and then a further substantial increase to 160 GWe by 2030.China is rapidly becoming self-sufficient in reactor design and construction, as well as other aspects of the fuel cycle.Nuclear power has an important role, especially in the coastal areas remote from the coalfields and where the economy is developing rapidly. Generally, nuclear plants can be built close to centres of demand, whereas suitable wind and hydro sites are remote from demand. Moves to build nuclear power commenced in 1970 and the industry has now moved to a rapid development phase. Technology has been drawn from France, Canada and Russia, with local development based largely on the French element. The latest technology acquisition has been from the USA (via Westinghouse, owned by Japan's Toshiba) and France. The Westinghouse AP1000 is the main basis of technology development in the immediate future.
