The International Energy Agency (IEA) in its latest World Energy Outlook (WEO), published on 13 October, says transition to a clean energy system is progressing too slowly for the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. However, the report provides analysis of how the world can still move towards a pathway that would have a good chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C but sees no key role for nuclear power.

Separate Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) supporting the future development and deployment of advanced small modular reactors (SMRs) in Canada will see Cameco and Terrestrial Energy investigate opportunities related to Terrestrial's Integrated Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR), while ARC Clean Energy Canada and Cross River Infrastructure Partners LLC will work together to develop sustainable industrial projects using ARC's SMR technology. Meanwhile, Canada's nuclear regulator has granted a 10-year licence renewal for an Ontario Power Generation (OPG) site earmarked for possible SMR deployment.

The transition to a clean energy system is still progressing too slowly for the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says in the latest edition of its World Energy Outlook, published today. However, it says a new energy economy is emerging around the world as solar, wind, electric vehicles and other low-carbon technologies flourish. The report provides analysis of how the world can still move towards a pathway that would have a good chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

The Danish nuclear reactor company Seaborg Technologies is currently completing important experiments in collaboration with both experts from Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS) at Oxford (UK) and European Spallation Source (ESS) research centre in Lund in Sweden. The goal is to understand how neutrons in modern reactors behave. The new knowledge should allow Seaborg to optimise their reactor design. The company is aiming for 2025 for having its first reactor online. Seaborg is developing compact thorium-based Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs).

A report from the US Clean Air Task Force (CATF) has found that that nuclear-derived zero-carbon fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia could play a key role in decarbonising the global marine shipping sector, and offers policy recommendations for how the US could lead the global transition away from high-polluting shipping fuels.

The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries have announced plans to work together on the development of a molten salt reactor (MSR) for marine propulsion and floating nuclear power plants. Samsung Heavy is also carrying out R&D into using ammonia and hydrogen to power ships in efforts to find alternative, low-emission propulsion options.

Failure to include a role for nuclear heat in mainstream scenarios proposed to achieve net-zero by 2050 is an opportunity lost, participants in a World Nuclear Association-hosted webinar, The role of nuclear beyond electricity, said yesterday.

Policymakers who ignore nuclear energy are not serious about meeting climate goals, delegates said at an Atlantic Council webinar last week. The first in the Raising Ambitions series, the event highlighted the attributes of this clean source of electricity and heat ahead of the Leaders’ Climate Summit, which the US Administration is hosting on 22-23 April.

Speakers at the US Energy Association's (USEA) 17th Annual State of the Energy Industry Forum last week called for the reimagination of the electricity grid and likened the efforts needed to develop alternative energy carriers, particularly for hard-to-decarbonise sectors, to a "moonshot".
