The last decade was marked by an important stage in power development that manifested in a gradual shift towards carbon free energy sources. The Paris Climate Change Summit has set a global trend to alter the world energy balance in favour of power generation with zero CO2 emissions.
This focus undoubtedly opens extensive possibilities for nuclear energy development. Today atom accounts for slightly more than 1/10 of world energy production, around 400 GW. The implementation of the Paris Climate Change Conference decisions and addressing global environmental problems require an essential increase of these figures by 2050.
The need for a transition to a new level of cooperation within the international atomic community, that could be called a global partnership, is pending today. Such partnerships, including in NPP construction as a key element of the modern nuclear energy, are of critical importance to solving systemic tasks of the atomic energy ensuring energy safety, stability of supplies and environmentally-friendly generation.
