November 8, 2016: China will have 58 million kilowatts (kw) of installed nuclear power by 2020 as it expands its clean energy network and pursues green growth, the country’s energy regulator announced on Monday.

The government will have around 30 million kw of nuclear energy facility going into operation and over 30 million kw of such facility under construction in the next five years, according to the 13th Five-Year Plan for power development released by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission.

China is expected to require about 6.8 trillion to 7.2 trillion kw of power by 2020, with per capital power consumption of about 5,000 kw, close to the level of medium-developed countries, Xinhua news agency reported.

Non-fossil fuel will play a bigger role as the government aims to lift its share in total energy consumption to about 15 per cent by the end of 2020.

Installed capacity of hydro power, wind power and solar power will be respectively about 340 million, 210 million and 110 million kw.

Meanwhile, the installed capacity of coal-fired power will be restricted within 1.1 billion kw while natural-gas-fired power will reach over 110 million kw by 2020.

China will also promote smart grid development, address regional power supply imbalances and improve the power market rules, according to the development plan. (IANS)

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
