The smog that is blanketing the north does not seem to have abated. In recent years, when the weather has hit the north, many people think of nuclear power involuntarily. The general argument is that China's air might be better if it could take advantage of cleaner sources like nuclear power.
Indeed, the Chinese government is already planning to launch and build more nuclear power projects. A person close to the national energy administration of the people familiar with the recently told the first financial daily, the national energy administration is actively preparing for the coastal nuclear power project started work, but that also need to state council executive meeting of the end.
The national energy administration has no power to determine the start of a nuclear power project. In general, the power of nuclear power projects requires three procedures: one is for approval by the national development and reform commission; The second is the adoption by the executive meeting of the state council; Third, the national nuclear safety administration issued a construction permit.
"Whether the coastal nuclear power project can play a role, see whether the state council has passed the executive meeting before the end of October." "The nuclear industry is ready," a domestic nuclear power source told reporters.
He told the financial times analysis of coastal nuclear power project can be started, the reason to see in October, because at the end of the November the north in winter, the cold weather will affect the construction of the project, which can only be delayed until next year in March and April.
Nuclear power projects that are expected to be launched this year are mainly in the northern coast. The official website of the Chinese government said in August that it would "start construction of the second phase of nuclear power plant in liaoning province and launch the construction of the nuclear power project in xuanbao, liaoning." In an interview with the red river nuclear power plant last year, our correspondent learned that the north, which has the most nuclear power projects in the country, is very difficult to build in the snowy winter.
Another nuclear power source told the newspaper that the construction of the rock island bay CAP1400 nuclear power plant in rongcheng, shandong province, is expected to be launched within the year. The project is one of 16 major science and technology projects in the country.
There are many indications that if the domestic nuclear power project is launched within the year, the second phase of the nuclear power project and the cap1,400 demonstration project in shidao bay will be the first to start. "Both projects have done well in the early stages." Those close to the national energy administration said.
The national energy administration held a seminar on nuclear power technology and development on September 25 to lay the groundwork for future nuclear power projects in the east.
The meeting was also attended by a handful of Chinese nuclear power companies. Some of them have said they are expected to start one or two nuclear projects in the country this year.
According to China's long-term development plan for nuclear power, the installed capacity of nuclear power will reach 40 gw by 2015, with 18 million kilowatts under construction. The planned installed capacity will reach 58 million kilowatts in 2020 and 30 gigawatts under construction. That means China must start a batch of coastal nuclear power projects this year and next, or it will be difficult to achieve. China has less than 20 gigawatts of nuclear power.
In the past few months, the central government has said that it will launch a new nuclear power project in the east coastal area under the precondition of adopting the highest international safety standards and ensuring security.
In addition to the three nuclear power projects mentioned above, the coastal nuclear power projects that are expected to be launched before next year include three phases: three phases, haiyang phase ii, lufeng phase I and fuqing phase iii.
The national development and reform commission energy research institute researcher jiang told this newspaper, in recent years, in order to adjust the imbalance of energy structure, reduce the one-time energy brings atmospheric pollution, China has been working to develop more clean energy. For example, wind, solar and nuclear power. In contrast to clean energy such as wind and solar energy, nuclear power generation is more stable, because the two previous two have intermittent effects on the grid, which affects the smooth operation of the power grid. Of course, nuclear power is inherently destined to carry high risk genes to some extent.
Nuclear power in the national energy bureau in September major projects "much starker choices-and graver consequences-in planning work boot" conference, Wu Xinxiong, head of the national energy administration, said, "much starker choices-and graver consequences-in" period is a major special sprint to five years, nuclear power to ensure that formed before the April 2015 nuclear power "much starker choices-and graver consequences-in" implementation plan. Over the past few months, the country's President xi jinping and premier li keqiang have said before, with highest international security standards, ensure safe premise, to start a new nuclear power project construction on the east coast.
, vice executive director of the China energy research institute, the national development and reform commission energy by director zhou dadi said recently that nuclear power is an important energy strategy, China for nuclear power generation in 2030 reached 2030 kilowatts, in 2050 to reach 400 million ~ 400 million kw. Zhou believes China needs to develop nuclear power and improve its energy supply structure. In addition, he said, the inland development of solar energy and wind energy is not ideal, and the energy structure of oil and coal is serious to the environment. However, there are some domestic disputes about the safety of inland nuclear power.
It's worth noting that investing in huge nuclear power projects can also help boost the economy to some extent, even as China's economy goes down.
