Webinar: The Growth Potential of Nuclear Small Modular Reactors
Thursday 25 May 2023 - How can SMRs open new use-cases for nuclear energy, decarbonizing problem industries in the process? Where in the world are SMRs developing today and where would they be expected to see greatest success? Are evolutionary vs. revolutionary approaches to reactor design more likely to see success in the global SMR fleet? What are the major roadblocks to deployment of SMRs and how could these be overcome? What players are working on SMRs and who is closest to delivering outside of Russia and China?

SMR Market to Meet 2% Of Total Electricity Demand by 2043
Small modular reactors (SMRs) promise cheaper nuclear energy, supplying zero-carbon grid baseload and enabling new use cases for nuclear reactors. By shrinking the size of nuclear reactors compared to conventional large nuclear reactors, much of the construction is transferred to factory assembly lines, cutting capital costs and making nuclear power cost-competitive with renewables in many applications.
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy and the BWRX-300
Joint venture GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (Hitachi GE in Japan) is developing the BWRX-300, an SMR (small modular reactor) that is based on the BWR (boiling water reactor) design. It hopes to deploy the first of its SMR designs in 2028.
Tsinghua University and the HTR-PM Reactor
China's HTR-PM reactor, developed primarily by Tsinghua University, is the first land-based, commercial-scale SMR (small modular reactor) to enter operation globally, with full power operation achieved in late 2022.
Terrestrial Energy
Canadian "young growth tech company" Terrestrial Energy is developing a small modular reactor (SMR) with flexible use-cases based around a molten salt reactor (MSR) design with short core lifetimes.
