Washington: China is expected to become the world's third largest nuclear generating nation around 2017, pushed by its national target against climate change, said US energy information administration (EIA).

To fight against climate change, Chinese government set a goal to increase the share of non-fossil fuels in its primary energy consumption to 15 percent by 2020, according to the China National Plan for Climate Change (2014-2020) released last year, reported Xinhua.

"To help achieve this target, China plans to increase nuclear capacity to 58 gigawatts (GW) and to have 30 GW of capacity under construction by 2020," said the EIA on Monday.

China is expected to surpass South Korea and Russia in nuclear generating capacity by the end of 2015, overtake Japan around 2017 and to be behind only after the US and France, said the EIA.

Since the beginning of 2013, China has added 10 reactors totaling more than 10 GW, pushing China's net installed nuclear capacity to 23 GW at present, said the EIA.
