UK Small Modular Reactors (SMR) Nuclear power plants based on small modular reactors (SMR) technology offer a convincing alternative to the uncertainties of the large nuclear new build programme. For a relatively small investment outlay, SMRs avoid the complex challenges associated with nuclear mega-projects that require tens of billions of pounds of Government-backed investment to progress.

*Editor's Note: Story first published by Idaho National Laboratory. To understand Idaho National Laboratory’s long-term involvement in small modular reactor (SMR) research, including NuScale Power and the Carbon Free Power Project, one needs to go back to the late 1990s.. For most of that decade, the U.S. government had not offered much support for nuclear energy research and development.

As noted by Vegel and Quinn , the past decade has been rich with studies on the economic competitiveness of small modular nuclear reactors but, unlike their study, research by Boldon et al. and the present study, these do not employ a ‘bottom-up‘ methodology that incorporates cost data from previous large NPP builds. 2 Rather, these studies focus on generic differences in SMR designs and ...

Small modular reactors (SMRs) are a type of nuclear fission reactor which are smaller than conventional reactors. This allows them to be manufactured at a plant and brought to a site to be assembled. Modular reactors allow for less on-site construction, increased containment efficiency, and enhanced safety due to passive safety features. ...
