This will be a series of short posts which I hope will put the energy revolution in China in perspective.
With Irish media outlets like state broadcaster RTE constantly pushing the narrative that China will be a renewables powerhouse within a couple of decades, I hope this series of posts will act as a counter balance to this type of propaganda.
China’s most recent Five-Year Plan has set a target for an additional 58 GW of nuclear capacity by 2020.
This capacity will provide enough power equivalent to the average demand of the entire French grid on a typical winter's day.
