EU Foreign Policy Chief Josef Borrell said during a recent visit to Tehran that the Vienna talks will resume with the aim of reinstating the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He made the comments at a joint press conference following talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian. Under the JCPOA between Iran the P5+1 group of countries (the USA, UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany) Iran agreed to limit its nuclear development in return for the lifting of sanctions. After former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal and reimposed sanctions in 2018, Iran began to gradually roll back on the restrictions imposed by the JCPOA after the European parties to the agreement failed to put any measures in place to mitigate those sanctions.

Global energy investment is expected to increase by 8% in 2022, well above pre-pandemic levels in 2019, but a much higher growth pace is needed for clean technologies, including nuclear, to be on track for a 1.5°C stabilisation of the rise in global average temperatures, a new report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) found.

The IEA’s World Energy Investment report said global energy investment this year is projected to reach $2.4tn (€2.28tn), with the bulk going into renewables and grids.

However, almost half of the increase in capital spending is linked to higher costs due to supply chain pressures instead of bringing additional energy supply capacity or savings.
