Nuclear Power and the Clean Energy Transition: Scientific Forum Opens

To meet climate change goals, almost all electricity will need to be low carbon, and that will only be possible if the use of nuclear power is increased, said IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi at the opening of the 2020 Scientific Forum today. Read more →

Innovations for the Clean Energy Transition

The world faces a growing demand for energy at the same time as it needs to tackle the realities of climate change. For climate change goals to be met by 2050, 90 per cent of electricity will need to be produced by low carbon sources. Nuclear power currently provides one third of all low carbon electricity. Watch the video →
