It is quite challenging to achieve 40 GWe of nuclear power installed capacity and another 18 GWe under construction by 2020 in China. This article analyzes the demand for uranium resources to achieve this goal, and discusses several optional advanced reactor types such as SCWR, HTGR and FBR/relevant fuel cycles for nuclear power development behind 2020 based on the practical demand for uranium resources and industrial capability. It is obvious that to develop SCWR in China is the most feasible option to effectively utilize and save uranium resources.
