With more than 170 parties having ratified the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, viable, financially sound and integrated solutions for providing low carbon, affordable energy is of critical interest. This, by necessity, encompasses the development of resilient production processes for the generation of electricity, heat, chemicals and fuels for deep decarbonization. Two principal options for low carbon energy are renewables and nuclear energy. While many institutions have expressed interest in one or the other of these options, few have explored the possible synergies between them. This publication consists of the proceedings of an IAEA Technical Meeting held to review and discuss concepts and innovative solutions, including the advantages and challenges associated with each option, pertaining to nuclear–renewable hybrid energy systems for decarbonized energy production and cogeneration.
