China as Nuclear Power
China’s nuclear strategy is based on the development of nuclear energy, which so far only takes 2% in the production of electricity in China. The main source of energy is coal, which accounts for 80% of the energy balance. The new Chinese authorities understand the unpromising ecological nature of the “black energy” and are actively developing nuclear power. By the beginning of 2018, 38 nuclear power units were in operation in China, which is about 9% of all capacities in the world.
