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.

The European Union (EU) Energy Council, meeting in Luxembourg, have reached agreement on reforming the EU electricity market, resolving the long-running dispute between France and Germany over the role of nuclear power. France has welcomed a decision that nuclear power should be included in future state-supported models, while Germany insisted that this must not lead to unfair competition through publicly funding ageing reactors abroad. The proposal now moves on to the European Parliament, where concessions on nuclear and coal power could still meet opposition.

The first VVER-440 fuel produced by US-based Westinghouse at its Swedish facility has been loaded into one of the reactors at Ukraine’s Rivne NPP. It was not clear which of the units – 1 or 2 – received the fuel, which reportedly will initially be mixed with the existing fuel supplied by Russia’s TVEL. Ukraine’s target, however, is to end the use of Russian-supplied fuel as soon as possible.

The European Union (EU) has selected a consortium led by Westinghouse to develop and deliver a secure, fully European nuclear fuel supply for Russian-designed pressurised water reactors (VVERs). Westinghouse says “diversifying the sources of VVER fuel will be fully achieved by strengthening European capabilities in design, manufacturing, and supply while accelerating the capacity-building process”.

The European Commission (EC) has adopted the Euratom Work Programme for 2023-2025 implementing the Euratom Research & Training Programme and supporting nuclear research with €132m in funding. The related call for proposals will focus on the safety of small modular reactors (SMRs), development of nuclear materials and the secure management and disposal of radioactive waste. The EC specified that the funding would include support for researchers from Ukraine, noting that “Among Eastern Partnership countries, Ukraine is the only country participating in the 2021-2025 Euratom programme.”
