Energy is economy. China is poised to leave the rest of us in their dust. Even Bill Gates was relegated to developing his new reactor design in China since no one else was willing to take him. Which means he has to share the rights with them. They will eventually hold all of the licenses to everything important.
Moltex refused to end up there and found a welcome home in Canada. Thorcon will start in Indonesia. But lacking any large government funding, they are both still 8 years away from a full 1GW plant. And sad to say, would have been much quicker to market if they had gone to China.
Unfortunately the rampant greenwashing of solar and wind plus batteries has fooled everyone into thinking we can just replace fossil fuels with that but the reality is that the numbers just do not add up.
