Speaking to delegates at the IEA-COP26 Net Zero Summit, Grossi said nuclear energy is a longstanding source of low-carbon electricity, has innovative solutions for further decarbonisation, and it enables renewable energy to be more effective.

Political wrangling over the classification of nuclear energy in taxonomies contradicts the low-carbon ambition of the Paris Agreement, Philippe Knoche, CEO of Orano, said last week during World Nuclear Association's Strategic eForum on Sustainable Finance. Knoche was joined on the panel by representatives of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Rothschild & Co, Brazil's National Bank for Economic and Social Development, Banque de France and the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS), who all said investment in new nuclear projects requires political consensus that is currently absent from some debates on sustainable finance.

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) latest country report on Turkey and energy policy review notes that Turkey has seen considerable diversification of its energy sector since the previous review in 2016. “Turkey has made significant progress on liberalising energy markets in the last decade, successfully improving predictability and transparency in pricing. However, additional reforms toward establishing more competitive gas and electricity markets will help mobilise needed investments into these sectors,” says IEA Executive Director Dr Fatih Birol in his foreword to the 191-page report.

The workshop the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency held jointly last week was very timely because the European Union is at an important juncture, and must consider the role of a variety of energy sources in its electricity mix if it is to achieve its decarbonisation goals, said Massimo Garribba, deputy director general of DG-Energy at the European Commission, adding that those sources include nuclear energy.
