Title: [21PacRimLPolyJ461] Will China’s 12th Five Year Plan Allow For Sufficient Nuclear Power to Support Its Booming Economy in the Next Twenty Years?
Author: Blazey, Patricia
Abstract: Patricia Blazey, Solicitor and barrister, Macquarie University, Sydney. Abstract: A major part of China’s 12th Five Year Plan focuses on energy conservation and environmental protection. Its 12th Year Environmental Plan provides that China will increase its nuclear capacity by 30% from 2010 levels of 10.8 gigawatts to 43 gigawatts in 2014. Two questions arise from this plan. First, will enough energy be produced from other sources to supply the country’s energy needs or will there be the need for an expansion to its nuclear program? Second, are the locations of its nuclear power plants safe in light of the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan following the tsunami in early 2011?
Description: Originally presented as part of a panel session called, “The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: Energy Sovereignty and the Future of Atomic Energy Ambitions in East Asia” held at the Second East Asian Law and Society Conference at Yonsei University College of Law in Seoul on October 1, 2011.
