China's nuclear power industry has accelerated its growth in recent years
As of August 2016, there are 447 in-use nuclear reactors in three countries and have been operating for 16795 reactor years. The total installed capacity is about 390,000MWe, accounting for 11% of the world's electricity generation. There are also 61 nuclear reactors under construction. In recent years, China’s nuclear power industry has seen an acceleration of power generation and officially entered the fast lane....
As of August 2016, China has 35 grid-connected nuclear power generating units, and another 20 are under construction. The number of nuclear power generating units under construction is number one in the world and accounts for 32.79% of the total number of nuclear power units under construction worldwide. In the first three quarters of 2016, China’s nuclear power generation capacity was 154.4 billion kWh, a year-on-year increase of 22.4%, accounting for more than 3% of the national electricity generation.
At present, China's nuclear power plants have become more autonomous in their key equipment and materials, and localized water has increased steadily. The localized rate of “Hualong I” has reached 85%. Approximately 8 sets of nuclear power equipment manufacturing hardware capabilities have been formed in the country each year. The construction and installation of power can meet the needs of more than 30 nuclear power units. Forward-looking Industry Research Institute "Nuclear Power Industry Market Analysis Report" predicts that in the next decade, nuclear energy production will grow at a rate of about 1.9% per year, China, India and Russia together account for 96% of global nuclear power growth. As of September 2016, China's nuclear power installed capacity reached 31.13 million kilowatts, with 20.5 million kilowatts under construction. The “Energy Development Strategic Action Plan (2014~2020)” issued by the General Office of the State Council in 2014 clearly stated that China’s installed nuclear power capacity will reach 58 million kilowatts by 2020 and the capacity under construction will reach 30 million kilowatts or more.
The construction period of China's nuclear power plants is approximately 5-6 years. It is assumed that the nuclear power plants that have not started construction by September 2016 will not be able to realize on-grid power generation before the end of 2020. The construction of nuclear power plants that have already started construction is progressing well and will be realized by the end of 2020. Net power generation. Therefore, in 2020, China's nuclear power has built up an installed capacity of about 52 million kilowatts and 30 million kilowatts under construction. Since the capacity of nuclear power plants under construction in September 2016 and the end of 2020 were 20,500,000 kilowatts and 30 million kilowatts (projected) respectively, according to the average estimate, the average capacity under construction during the “13th Five-Year Plan” period is estimated to be about 25.25 million kilowatts, from the medium to long term. From the viewpoint of comprehensive consideration of future electricity demand, energy structure adjustment, power structure adjustment, advantages of nuclear power, and national long-term development plan for nuclear power, it is expected that the installed nuclear power capacity will reach 150 million kilowatts by 2030, that is, the average annual nuclear power installation by 2020-2030. Up to 8.3 million kilowatts.
