MORE NUKE PLANTS? China's main developer of nuclear power plants says it plans to raise money with an initial public offering, suggesting industry building is resuming after A suspension following Japan's nuclear disaster last year.

CHECKED OUT: Authorities launched an inspection of China's 13 operating reactors following the Fukushima disaster and said they found no problems. They said they were reviewing work on the 28 reactors under construction.

COAL STILL KING: China is the world's biggest energy consumer. Increasing use of nuclear power is a key part of Beijing's plans to curb demand for fossil fuels, though coal is forecast to remain the country's main energy source for decades.
