China expected to account for more than half of world growth in nuclear power through 2040 ›

EIA's International Energy Outlook 2016 (IEO2016) projects that total global nuclear generation will increase by 73% through 2040, from 2.6 trillion kilowatthours in 2015 to 4.5 trillion kilowatthours in 2040. Countries that are not a part of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (non-OECD countries) account for 86% of this increase, with China alone making up more than 54% of total growth. China's growing nuclear fleet is expected to produce more than 1.2 trillion kilowatthours of electricity annually by 2040. More
