Energy crisis sparked by Russia’s war on Ukraine has left many Western nations planning a return to nuclear power
China should make full use of its strengths in global nuclear energy cooperation and market the technology to the developed world, a senior energy policy researcher at the country’s top economic planner said.
Zhou Dadi, from the National Development and Reform Commission’s Energy Research Institute, said China cooperates with developed nations on nuclear energy by importing their technology and building demonstration projects. But it should also promote Chinese nuclear technology and construction capabilities, not only to developing countries but to developed ones as well, to contribute to the global low-carbon system, Zhou said.
“It is critical to consider the global market in advance and study the demand from developed countries,” he said.
