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.

US-based NuScale Power and Romania’s RoPower Nuclear have signed a contract for Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) as a step towards deployment of a NuScale VOYGR small modular reactor (SMR) power plant in Romania. RoPower is owned in equal shares by Romania’s nuclear utility SN Nuclearelectrica and Nova Power & Gas. The new contract follows signing in June of a Memorandum of Understanding between NuScale and Nuclearelectrica to begin engineering studies, technical reviews, and licensing and permitting activities for the eight-month project.
