Power-hungry China underrates demand – Thomas Catan

From The Australian (link):

CHINA has underestimated the amount of new power generation it will need to meet demand, according to a report that estimates an extra $US180 billion ($243 billion) will have to be spent by 2020.

International consultancy Capgemini has forecast that the country will need another 280 gigawatts of generation by 2020, as well as the 950GW planned. The report, released yesterday, was compiled in conjunction with French utility EDF and the China Electricity Council.
