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.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has conducted more than 3,000 in-field verification activities and spent more than 14,500 days in the field in 2021, according to the Safeguards Statement for 2021. This represents a return to the pre-pandemic trend of increasing worldwide in-field nuclear verification effort year after year. The Safeguards Statement presents the IAEA’s findings and safeguards conclusions for all States for which the IAEA implemented safeguards during the year. IAEA safeguards are technical measures embedded in safeguards agreements, implemented by the IAEA to verify that nuclear material remains in peaceful use.

IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi told a press conference that Iran had informed the Agency of its intention to remove 27 cameras as well as an online monitoring system and a flowmeter from its nuclear facilities. The cameras would be removed in the coming days from various sites, including Natanz, Isfahan, Tehran and Karaj.  He said this “poses a serious challenge” for inspectors working there. He estimated that some 40 cameras would remain in place.
