China will almost triple its nuclear capacity to nearly 100 gigawatts by 2026, making it the biggest market globally, overtaking the U.S.

China has committed to boosting nuclear power, which accounted for about 1,7 percent of its total generation in 2015, to help reduce reliance on coal, which accounts for about two-thirds of the country’s primary energy. The nation has 20 reactors currently under construction, and other 176 are either planned or proposed, far more than any other nation.

In fact coal’s share in the nation’s energy mix will gradually fall to just under 54 percent by 2026 from its current 70 percent.
