Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) in the UK

Nuclear_Institute 150The Nuclear Institute is delighted to present the one-day seminar on Small Modular Reactors with the theme: UK in SMR; SMR in UK, on the 25th September 2015 at the Manchester Conference Centre, UK.

Leading experts, academia and industry pioneers will address the important questions around SMRs in the UK. Policymakers will also present HMG Nuclear Innovation and Research Advisory Board’s feasibility study on SMR, and examine paths forward for this important tool for global warming / GHG-emissions mitigation.

Nuclear power plans in the UK may gain a new dimension with SMRs (small modular reactors), a scalable, emissions-free power generation technology suitable for a range of applications and sites.

What role could SMRs play in the UK’s energy mix? 
What contribution could the UK make to this new industry? 
Will the UK build SMRs – and could it build the first fleet?
What will it take to build the first SMR in the UK today?

Policymakers and industry leaders will present HMG Nuclear Innovation and Research Advisory Board’s feasibility study on SMR, and examine paths forward for this important tool for global warming / GHG-emissions mitigation. 

The implications for meeting Britain’s decarbonisation commitments, for the grid, for planning and licencing, for British manufacturing, jobs, entrepreneurship and the innovation ecosystem will be discussed by leading experts, academia and industry pioneers.

Key Highlights:

 SMR Design & Operation · SMR Feasibility Study from HM Government Nuclear Innovation and Research Advisory Board (NIRAB) · Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Select Committee Enquiry Report · Manufacturing and Supply Chain · Economics · Licensing · International Exhibition
