Government leaders and energy and climate experts are increasingly acknowledging that nuclear energy can be a critical component of the global transition to a low-carbon energy system as well as an option to bolster energy security and reliability. But for nuclear energy to reach its full potential, stakeholders must have a clear vision for how to pursue new nuclear energy projects and industries responsibly, sustainably, and effectively.

During this event at COP28, Clean Air Task Force (CATF), the EFI Foundation, and the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) will release their new report, A Global Playbook for Nuclear Energy Development in Embarking Countries: Six Dimensions for Success, which outlines pathways forward in this critical moment for the future of nuclear energy.

The report’s authors will share the Playbook’s options-based strategy for scaling new nuclear energy projects—including best practices and new principles that all can benefit from adopting—and highlight how it accounts for the unique challenges and opportunities in individual countries.
