Westinghouse Joins IAEA Nuclear Saves Partnerships

Westinghouse Electric Company is joining the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s “Nuclear Saves Partnerships”, a new initiative designed to mitigate the impacts of climate change via investment in nuclear power technology, renewable integrated energy systems and climate smart agriculture, among others.

I am keen to ensure that the IAEA, with the support of Westinghouse and others, will remain at the forefront of deploying nuclear science and technology to address global challenges.

said IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi.

Nuclear power is the world’s largest source of carbon-free energy and is critical to help reverse climate change trends and meet decarbonization deadlines established by the world’s leading climate scientists.

Operating at full power nearly 93% of the time, nuclear power plants reliably fill the renewable energy void that intermittent sources such as wind and solar alone cannot fill.
