Small modular reactors – the real nuclear renaissance?

Speakers: Professor Juan Matthews

Nuclear power stations have become too complicated, take too long to build and are too expensive. Is it possible to use factory prefabrication and larger series of orders to make small reactors economic? This may also be a route to re-establish nuclear manufacturing in the UK.

The UK is now looking at this option and some real money was promised by the Government in the Spending Review last year to make a decision on whether to commit to a development programme. This talk looks at the background to the interest in SMRs in the UK and some of the designs that are currently being proposed.

Refreshments will be served from 6.00pm.
