The ITER Organisation is preparing a new timeline for construction of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) being built at Cadarache in France. As part of work underway to update the ITER Project Baseline, a group of experts met in February to evaluate the new blueprint for achieving ITER's research goals.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) in its latest report, Electricity 2024, dedicates a significant amount of space to nuclear power – a departure from its previous studies which treated it as peripheral. In its press release on the new report, IEA says the increase in electricity generation from renewables and nuclear "appears to be pushing the power sector's emissions into structural decline". Over the next three years, low-emissions generation is set to rise at twice the annual growth rate between 2018 and 2023. Global emissions from electricity generation are expected to decrease by 2.4% in 2024, followed by smaller declines in 2025 and 2026.
