Beijing, Sun, 11 Mar 2012 ANI

Beijing, March 11 (ANI): Nuclear power remains important to China's energy development strategy because of its quest for clean energy and climate change mitigation, an expert has said.


Chinese Ministry of Environment Protection nuclear safety expert Ren Junsheng said the country conducted safety inspections of its nuclear plants, including determining appropriateness of site selection, ability to withstand earthquakes and floods, robustness of measures to address various extreme natural events and effectiveness of monitoring and emergency preparedness.


"The Chinese nuclear industry still feels confident to meet the installed capacity targets of 40 million and 70 million kilowatts by 2015 and 2020 respectively," Xinhua quoted Junsheng, as saying at a speech in Hong Kong's City University.
