Energy Secretary Participates in Vienna Conference

She met with the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Last week, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm met with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi at the IAEA 65th General Conference in Vienna, Austria. Secretary Granholm discussed the United States’ support for the IAEA’s nuclear energy applications, safety, and security missions. The U.S. will be hosting the 2022 IAEA Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in Washington, D.C, next year.

“Nuclear is a key technology for Member States as they aim to lower their emissions, grow their economies, and ultimately combat climate change in a truly sustainable way. It’s an incredible honor for the United States to be hosting the 2022 IAEA Nuclear Power Ministerial at such a pivotal time,” said Secretary Granholm. “The U.S. Department of Energy is committed to working with Director General Grossi and the IAEA to ensure a successful conference and we strongly encourage all countries to send Ministerial-level representatives to join us as we unlock the full potential of nuclear.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm as she interacts with foreign ministers regarding nuclear energy.
  • For officials of the Energy Department as renewable, clean energy sources are promoted.
