Innovations in Nuclear Tech: Fighting the Climate Crisis

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. The 2020 IAEA Scientific Forum will examine how nuclear power can play a role in the clean energy transition, with technological and scientific progress in the use of atomic energy offering great potential to help countries achieve both global climate goals and their own development aspirations.
