Today, large commercial nuclear reactors generate approximately 20 percent of the nation's electricity and contribute 60 percent of the nation's carbon-free electricity. Growing domestic electricity demand and a drive to use low-emission technologies bode well for the future of the domestic nuclear energy industry. However, an aging reactor fleet, rising costs, safety concerns, and increasing pressure from low-cost natural gas pose challenges for the industry. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) offer the potential to mitigate some of these challenges. This webinar explores the unique characteristics of SMRs and their potential role in the nuclear energy industry. It also discusses state and federal efforts to support development of SMR technologies.
