IEA calls for support for nuclear energy

IEA calls for support for nuclear energy

Сonsistent policy support for existing and new capacity, including clean energy incentive schemes for development of nuclear alongside other clean forms of energy”.

Agneta Rising, Director General, World Nuclear Association said, “The IEA’s report is clear: nuclear needs to be a major source of clean energy, reliably supplying the world’s future requirements”, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to IEA.

The IEA made its recommendation in its publication Energy Technology Perspectives 2017, which was published. 

The IEA’s report projects nuclear energy growing to nearly triple its current capacity by 2060. The global nuclear industry’s Harmony goal goes beyond that, setting out how nuclear energy can provide 25% of the world’s electricity by 2050 to help meet our future energy challenge. This would require the construction of 1000 GWe of new nuclear capacity.

Agneta Rising said, “The IEA’s more ambitious scenario requires deployment of largely untested technologies, such as carbon capture and storage, on a massively expanded scale. Nuclear energy has a proven track record in supplying clean energy and can be expanded quickly.
