A special report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), The Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions, released on 5 May, is a comprehensive global study on the central importance of minerals such as copper, lithium, nickel, cobalt and rare earth elements in a secure and rapid transformation of the global energy sector. The 287-page report recommends six key areas of action for policy makers to ensure that critical minerals are available to accelerate the transition to clean energy, rather than becoming a bottleneck.

Russia’s Ministry for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, the Government of the Sakhalin Region and Rosatom on 23 April signed an agreement of intent for cooperation on the "Creation and Development of a Hydrogen Cluster" project during the Sakhalin Region Open Doors Day for investors. The agreement provides for cooperation in a number of areas, including the construction of a hydrogen production complex; organisation of the hydrogen supply chain to foreign markets and local consumers; and creation of a hydrogen park with enterprises implementing projects in this area. For personnel training, technology transfer and exchange of experience, it is also planned to create a competence centre for hydrogen and other forms of clean energy at Sakhalin State University.

The levelised costs of electricity generation of low-carbon generation technologies are falling and are increasingly below the costs of conventional fossil fuel generation, according to a report by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Energy Agency (IEA). The cost of electricity from new nuclear power plants remains stable, yet electricity from the long-term operation of existing plants constitutes the least cost option for low-carbon generation. Nuclear electricity is expected to have lower costs in the near future, the report says.
