The ANS Nuclear Cafe has an update and perspective on Small Modular Reactor Development
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has a $452 million program to share development and licensing costs for selected small modular reactor (SMR) designs. The DOE’s goal is to have an operating SMR by ~2022.
Jim Hopf takes a close look at the current development and licensing status, safety advantages, and economic tradeoffs of small modular reactors. And he explores a very important question: Will the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission allow SMRs to succeed?
Nextbigfuture looks at the 2012 nuclear power generated by country.
