There is increasing and widespread recognition that nuclear energy will feature in the future global energy mix and make its contribution to sustainable development. The growth of nuclear energy and its role in the global energy transition will be influenced by a number of factors.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Alternative Use of Atomic Energy, 10/07/2019. Atomic Energy is being used for various applications which are beneficial to mankind. Nuclear energy is also used for the production of

BP released the 68th annual edition of the BP Statistical Review of World Energy (BP Stats Review), the most comprehensive collection and analysis of global energy data. This year's edition highlights the growing divergence between demands for action on climate change and the actual pace of progress on reducing carbon emissions.

Nuclear power and hydropower form the backbone of low-carbon electricity generation. Together, they provide three-quarters of global low-carbon generation. Over the past 50 years, the use of nuclear power has reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by over 60 gigatonnes – nearly two years’ worth of global energy-related emissions.

Energy transition is a part of a much wider Grand Transition, which is not all about energy. Energy transition cannot be achieved all at once or by any one actor. Relying only on better energy modelling and forecasting to guide successful transition will be fatal, even in a data-rich era.

The 2019 edition of BP’s Energy Outlook, explores the key uncertainties that could impact the shape of global energy markets out to 2040.

The renewed upward march of global carbon emissions is worrying and a big step backwards in the fight against climate change, according to BP. Emissions rose 1.6% in 2017 after flatlining for the previous three years, which the British oil firm said was a reminder the world was not on track to hit the goals of the Paris climate deal.

The Energy Outlook considers the energy transition from three different viewpoints (sectors, regions and fuels) and by exploring a number of different scenarios.

Algeria said Sunday it is due to submit new proposals to France over the issue of compensation Paris has to provide to victims of nuclear tests in Algeria.

China is the world’s largest consumer of coal, but it also has more wind and solar generation capacity than any other country in the world. This is just one insight drawn from the new and updated edition of Key World Energy Statistics (KWES) released by the IEA. The new version of KWES still provides headline data on all fuels, and now also contains additional information highlighting the rapid growth of renewable technologies, for example that in four countries wind generation provided more than 10% of all electricity, with solar providing more than 5% in two countries.
