Workshop — Paris, France

IEA-NEA Nuclear Technology Roadmap Update Workshop


The IEA, together with the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) held its third and final nuclear roadmap stakeholder dialogue meeting.

The meeting brought together key stakeholders from industry, government, finance and other relevant organisations to review preliminary milestones and recommendations for the IEA/NEA’s Nuclear Roadmap Update to be published in late 2014. 

In 2010, the IEA and the NEA released a Nuclear Energy Technology Roadmap which outlined the steps needed to accelerate the development of nuclear power and its role in achieve deep greenhouse-gas emissions reduction.  Both the global energy sector and the outlook for nuclear have changed significantly since then and an update of this roadmap is currently underway.
