China just connected its 37th nuclear reactor to the power grid. The Fuqing Unit 4 nuclear reactor has a net power output of 1.087 GigaWatts and is based on the CPR-1000 nuclear reactor design. "CPR" is an acronym for Chinese Pressurized-water Reactor.

Nuclear reactors are important, because they provide an independent source of electricity. Unlike nuclear, oil-based or LNG-based electricity-generation is susceptible to energy embargoes. In contrast, nuclear-supplied electricity lasts for decades with stockpiled uranium.
