IAEA's Grossi at COP 25: More Nuclear Power Needed for Clean Energy Transition   IAEA's Grossi at COP 25: Strengthening Ties for Climate Action
IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi, speaking at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 25), said greater use of low-carbon nuclear power is needed to ensure the global transition to clean energy, including to back up variable renewables such as solar and wind.   IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi, speaking after a meeting with United Nations SG Antonio Guterres, said they both recognized that nuclear energy is part of the solution to the climate crisis and the IAEA plays a key role in supporting countries in its safe and secure use.
Unique IAEA Gathering Highlights Social Media's Role in Stakeholder Involvement   COP25 Climate Change Conference Explores Decarbonization Strategies
More than 120 participants from 66 countries gathered in Vienna at the IAEA Technical Meeting on Using Social Media for Public Communication and Stakeholder Involvement for Nuclear Programmes. The input received during the meeting will be used to update the recently revamped Nuclear Communicator's Toolbox.
  How can the world rapidly decarbonize the energy sector to meet both climate goals and a growing demand for energy? At an IAEA event on the sidelines of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, leaders and experts discussed the role of low carbon energy options including nuclear power in national decarbonization strategies.

IAEA's INIR Service Looks Ahead to 2020 After Year's Final Mission to Egypt


World Science Day: International Nuclear Information System Highlights Open Access 

IAEA efforts to support Member States in establishing the necessary infrastructure for a nuclear power programme are set to intensify with four Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review (INIR) missions planned for next year, following the completion of the final INIR of 2019 in Egypt.
  Public awareness of developments in scientific research is crucial for building a more informed global society, and the IAEA is providing access to a trove of research on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology.    
Nuclear Power Experts Explore Solutions to New Build Challenges at IAEA Event   Adapting the Energy Sector to Climate Change, IAEA Publication Available
The IAEA Technical Meeting on Challenges in New Build Projects in Countries with Nuclear Power Programmes examined a wide range of issues, from schedule management to implementation challenges, and explored potential pathways for optimizing the construction and commissioning of new plants.
  This new IAEA publication explores the diverse range of impacts on the energy sector resulting from gradual climate change and extreme weather events, and the potential ways to counter them. Adequate responses to these challenges are crucial for a secure and reliable energy supply, including nuclear energy.  
Enabling Technology for Fusion: IAEA Forum Pushes Forward Advanced Mock-ups   Effective, Sustainable Use of Research Reactors: IAEA Conference Opens
Connecting plasma physics and engineering aspects in innovative technology design and fusion machine operation was the focus of the third IAEA Technical Meeting on Divertor Concepts held in Vienna and attended by some 70 international experts.
  Life-saving radioisotopes, innovative materials, education and new facts about cultural heritage are a few of the many benefits of research reactors. How to continue maximizing these benefits was discussed at the International Conference on Research Reactors in Buenos Aires.
