Generation IV nuclear reactors offer advantages such as proliferation resistance, safety, and sustainability compared to earlier ones. They use reprocessed nuclear fuels that can enable sustainable energy development. As they target at minimizing the use of pressurized components and water as coolants, an improvement in the operational safety factor is expected. The use of reprocessed fuels also helping in disposing wastes with much less radioactive content. USA, Europe, China, South Korea and Russia are some of the countries actively involved in developing Generation IV reactors and associated technologies. The 'generation IV' concept is still in design stage and is expected to reach demonstration and pilot scale around 2025 to 2030.

The Future Tech Alerts capture emerging innovations in research and development, or profile existing technologies which have seen a resurgence in terms of new markets and applications. They usually provide a technology overview, drivers, challenges, research and development, analyst insights and key patent information. In some cases, technology convergence scenarios and future growth opportunities are outlined. Future Tech TOEs cover innovations and technologies in a variety of industry spaces including manufacturing, sensors, electronics, information and communications technologies, networks, lighting technologies, healthcare, medical devices, materials and coatings, and developments in the energy sector that contribute toward a sustainable and greener world.

The Sustainable Energy cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.
