NEA analysis highlights that meeting global net zero targets necessitates a tripling of installed nuclear capacity by 2050. Concurrently, nuclear new build has become a top priority in several OECD and NEA member countries, which now face significant challenges in part due to years of inactivity and evolving policy, industrial, and regulatory contexts. The second high-level conference will convene senior government officials and industry executives to address the challenges of preparing for nuclear new build and share recent experiences to pinpoint solutions to deliver new nuclear construction at the scale and pace required to meet net zero targets.

Following the first Roadmaps to New Nuclear conference, the NEA is supporting members and partners to facilitate a network of government officials and industry leaders on a practical, solutions-oriented basis. This network will help inform policy and investment decisions for new nuclear capacity and the long-term operation (LTO) of existing reactors. The NEA plans to provide a full progress report on these activities for delivery at the second Roadmaps to New Nuclear conference.
