Nuclear power is an important energy source to help limit global warming to 1.5 °C. It is reliable, clean, safe, and secure. However, its role in dealing with climate change is not explicitly recognised in the G20 and Conference of the Parties (COP) meetings. This Policy Brief calls on G20 governments and the global community to acknowledge the significance of nuclear power in achieving a reliable and clean energy transition. This includes supporting existing nuclear plants, constructing new ones, and developing advanced nuclear technologies. G20 countries should promote research, pilot projects, and provide education to raise public awareness of the positive contributions of nuclear power towards climate change mitigation. Sharing best practices and ensuring adherence to nuclear safety, security, and non- proliferation standards are essential.
