10:11, October 25, 2012

Several plans for the development of China's energy sector and nuclear power safety over the next five years have been passed, according to an official statement released on Wednesday.

The 12th Five-Year Plan on Energy Development (2011-15) states that China should accelerate the transformation of energy production and utilization patterns and reinforce energy conservation priorities, according to a statement released after an executive meeting of the State Council, presided over by Premier Wen Jiabao.

The executive meeting also discussed and passed the Nuclear Power Safety Plan (2011-20) as well as the Mid- and Long-term Development Plan for Nuclear Power (2011-20), the statement said.

During the 2011-2015 period, it will not construct any nuclear projects in inland regions, but only construct a few projects in coastal areas that have gone through justification processes.

China will also apply the world's highest safety requirements to new nuclear power projects and adhere to third-generation nuclear safety standards in constructing new projects, the statement said.
