Nuclear's Small Revolution

Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) have dominated headlines in recent years as the technology moves toward viability as a carbon-free energy source. As utilities search for solutions to replace coal, are SMRs the answer? 

This presentation will explain how to evaluate if SMRs are right for your utility, and present use cases and factors such as environment, timeline, permitting and budget. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the SMR market and the key players. They’ll also gain greater insight into an owner’s engineer perspective on deploying SMRs.
