The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) promotes the safe and efficient use of nuclear power by supporting new and existing nuclear programmes around the world. It does this by driving innovation and by building capacity in energy planning, analysis and nuclear information and knowledge management. The IAEA helps countries meet their growing energy demands, while improving energy security, reducing environmental and health impacts and mitigating climate change.

Today, 413 nuclear power reactors operating in 31 countries make up more than 370 gigawatts of installed capacity, providing almost 10 per cent of the world’s total electricity and a quarter of its low-carbon supply. If the world is to achieve its ambitious net zero climate goals by 2050, more work is needed. 

The Nuclear Energy Summit is the highest-level meeting to date exclusively focused on the topic of nuclear energy. World leaders will together highlight the role of nuclear energy in addressing the global challenges to reduce the use of fossil fuels, enhance energy security and boost economic development. Following the adoption of the Summit Declaration, panel discussions will be held with industry and civil society showcasing how innovation is further enhancing the competitiveness, usability and sustainability of nuclear power, as well as opportunities and challenges in establishing a level playing field for funding and financing nuclear power projects.
