China 'to build new nuclear plants'
The Chinese government is expected to soon announce a new programme of nuclear power station building, the BBC's Martin Patience has reported.
With China's energy demands expected to double over the next decade, the country wishes to move away from its current reliance on coal power generation.
Yet following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster in Japan, China is also expected to scale back on its nuclear ambitions, and abandon plans to build more than 100 new reactors across the country.
Instead it is expected to announce a much lower number.
