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.

A small-angle neutron scattering instrument (SANS) has been delivered to the Argentine Neutron Beam Laboratory (LAHN - Laboratorio Argentino de Haces de Neutrones) at the Ezeiza Atomic Centre. Argentina’s National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA - Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica) said the SANS was donated by the German Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB) institute following the closure of the BER-II reactor in 2019. The instrument, which is 33 metres long when assembled, was delivered to the site in eight containers. The detection tube alone, which works in a high vacuum, is 16 metres long and 1.5 metres in diameter.
