Nuclear plants provide 2.3 percent [9 GWe] of China's power and the proportion is planned to rise to 16 percent by 2030.

Russia has found a home for all that nuclear energy that they will be producing from the new nuclear plants..

As the world's two major energy consumers and producers, China and Russia are planning to build several power transmission lines across their borders. This would involve investments of "multi billion yuan", said an official familiar with the project who asked not to be named.


Sources with China's largest grid company, State Grid, yesterday said that the company has finalized a long-term power supply deal with Russia. Under the agreement, Russia will transfer 3.6-4.3 billion kWh of power to China in 2008-10, 18 billion kWh in 2010-15, and 60 billion kWh from then on.

I believe in June the latest number was raised for their 2020 target to 80GWs.

So, although the US has more nuclear power plants than any other nation, rapidly developing China plans to have more than the US by 2020.
