With the offshore oil and gas field under development

..........in East China Sea, and South China Sea + capacity to import from Qatar, Malayan Federation or Australia; LNG combined cycle electricity generating plants becomes viable for China.

These type of power plant is among the cleanest, and safest source of energy!

China would probably build 150 giga capacity to supplement the new nuclear power plants. CLEAN, little pollutant, dust problem - perfect in the populated cities of the coastal provinces!

cheerios!

For Energy security and improve efficiencies

..................many dense city has DISTRICT UTILITIES which primarily use clean LIQUIDIFIED NATURAL GAS fuel to gain clean Electricity, HOT WATER, CHILLED WATER for use in Mega City projects or District Utility needs!

The fuel cell technology compactness makes it viable in City Centres.

All cities bylaws require BACK UP power facilities to run essential services, and nowadays all buildings has HOT/CHILLED water needs for Air condition or Heating! The huge volume of CHILLED water needs in tropical and HOT water needs in TEMPERATE regions, meant the electricity is just a by product!

The LNG can either be PIPED in or transported via Prime Movers.

Cheerios!

Yes, this is the period for cleaner fuels

............less NOX, SOX issues, less ash, dust problems, avoidance of the radiation hazards. Best of all, Natural Gas can be easily transported via pipelines.

Huge exploration and Natural Gas tapping has begun in East China Sea, South China Sea.
China would need to expand these sector of it's resources now!
A whole lot of new technologies is being developed to use the natural gas, which we assume from Abiotic theory of hydrocarbon production, should be pretty big in supply.

Heck! We can even get "Marsh gas" from marsh land, coal bed gas from coal mines, not to say Bio reactors. Of cours  Mother nature's production capacity is huge!

cheerios!

Another clean source of electricity is the

.................GEOTHERMAL plant.

It however needs HOT ROCK resources at economical DRILL DEPTHS.
Many state, especially near volcanic hot spot develop this source of energy due to the access of less costly magma rocks created by the natural fault lines.

As coal, crude oil, gas becomes more expensive to mine or extract, MORE GEOTHERMAL plant will be built all over the world with GREATER DRILL DEPTHS.

THERE WAS NEVER any shortage of energy, just the ACCESS and COST!

Cheerios!

This is the STUFF OF SCIENCE FICTION

...........power of the SUN.

Imagine the scientist finding a way to maintain a stable "controlled fusion" MINI SUN. Converting Matter into pure energy to electricity.

However, such is still SCIENCE FICTION, as the energy needed to "contain" and create a "stable mini sun" is MORE ENERGY CONSUMING than the actual energy released by the "Fusion Process".

Cheerios!

The latest on China's effort to increase electricity capacity production!

Greener energy is on the way with Russian Federation's help.

China is building a prototype FAST BREEDER REACTOR, which basically create more fissile fuel as it consumer it's base materials. In 2009, it's first prototype plant was readied and has been commissioned for testing in 2010. By year 2020, China would have it's first 0.6 giga plant and a 1.5 giga plant is expected in year 2030.

The waste created from the "conventional fission" reactors will be recycled in this new generation of nuclear generators. It's expected to increase China's electricity production capacity by 80X of it's domestic mined fuel, and the imported waste.

Cheerios!

Motherland, do we have a coal strategy after the next 35 years?
