Small Modular Reactors (SMR): Gaining Importance in the Nuclear Industry

Summary

Environmental concerns and climate change initiatives have paved the way for several countries to look forward to technologies like small modular reactors (SMR) to generate power. The governments and nuclear utilities in several countries are considering SMRs as a potential technology to complement large nuclear reactors in providing carbon-free power for domestic and industrial usage. The SMRs which were initially used for providing power to naval and air force bases were later considered for domestic power production. Many companies are engaged in the research and development (R&D) of SMRs. The main applications of SMRs apart from electricity generation are desalination, process heating and district heating. SMRs are gaining importance in the global nuclear power industry; according to recent new reports, in the US’s 2012 budget proposal, funds are said to be allocated to the development and deployment of SMRs. Despite the constraints, the SMRs enlist more key drivers for its deployment. SMR design is also considered as an alternative to replacing ageing fossil power plants of READ MORE >
