Clean Power Plants.
plants would be located
where the energy demand is the highest to reduce the cost of transmission
manufacturing facilities would build three power plant per week or 150
per year. After ten to fifteen years, China could export the power plants to other countries.
& Uranium Power Plants
would be 50% efficient and generate clean electricity cheaper than
coal or about 3 cents per kilowatt. If process energy were used in people?s homes and
businesses, the power plant?s efficiency could increase to 85%. Chemical
companies could use process energy to make petroleum and consumer
1,200 Megawatt power plant, for example, would burn a metric ton of thorium or uranium
and would generate 10 Billion kilowatt-hours of electricity that is
$1 billion at 10 cent per kilowatt. Power plant would reprocess the fuel onsite. The metric
ton of waste would have 300-year lifetime compared to 10,000 to
100,000 years from nuclear power plants.
China's could use the spent fuel from their nuclear power plants plus depleted uranium, thorium, and plutonium left over from the
cold war and processed it into fuel for the Thorium and Uranium
power plants. There is enough natural sources of thorium and uranium to supply the
China's energy needs for thousands of years.
Mirror Power Plants are three times more efficient
than existing power plants. Matter
and mirror matter are converted into Mirror Energy according to the
mass times the speed of light squared. Using the same example, a
1,200 Megawatt power plant would use 200 grams of mirror fuel and
would generate 10 billion kilowatt hours of electricity with an
estimated value of $1 billion at 10 cent per kilowatt.
power plants could be upgraded. This would save both time and money
by utilizing the existing infrastructure. After the power plants
become operational, the existing builds, cooling towers, etc would
be demolished. The excess property make available for homes,
businesses, schools, and parks.
There is mirror matter to supply the World's energy needs for
billions of years.
and Wind Hydroelectricity
and other clean energy sources could supply a significant part of China's energy
needs. The Three Gorges Dam hydroelectric facility, the largest
hydroelectric project in the world
is operational with a total
maximum capacity of 22.5 GW. 687 Trillion watt hours of electricity was generated,
which was 15% of the country's total electricity generation. |
Hydroelectric generates averages
about 4% depending upon the weather. Solar, wind and other clean
energy sources would supply about 1%. Plans are
to increase hydro capacity to 325 GW by the end of 2015.
Chinese companies plan to invest $65
billion in renewable energy projects in 2012. In addition, they plan
to spend $473 billion on clean energy investments according to the
is used because the demand for electrical power is flat throughout
the day and night. China reject United Nation's plans to implement a
carbon dioxide emissions tax. Based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plans
for United States Carbon Tax, China's electrical rates would have
tripled to over 30 cents per kilowatt-hour.|
average cost of electricity is about
cents per kilowatt. The tariff for electrical rates varies: Non-residential
was pegged at 0.74 Yuan (12 US cents), non-industrial use at 0.77
Yuan (12 US cents), major industrial use at 0.61 Yuan (10 US cents),
agricultural use at 0.43 Yuan (7 US cents), and farmers in poor
areas at 0.19 Yuan (3 US cents).

States, a 1,200 Megawatt
power plant would cost
about $1 billion.
actual cost of the power plant would depend upon cost of production
in China. China could offer companies a Tax Incentive that would enable
companies to depreciate the new power plants over five years and
have a five-year payback. After five years, the cash flow could be
taxed at 50% and generate tax revenue.
Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Power is currently
working with the Generation
IV International Forum,
collaboration on the next generation of nuclear power plants to meet the
World?s future clean energy needs. The Office
of Nuclear Power
help with support from the World Nuclear
