SMRs could be deployed by 2030 aiding heat decarbonisation

Small modular reactors coupled with district heat networks provide winning low-carbon tag-team, according to research technology group ETI

The site of the new nuclear power station project Hinkley Point C. Photograph: Joe Golby/123RFNuclear energy remains a “core, underpinning technology” for UK energy as well as heat decarbonisation, according to the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI).

It presented a series of research papers on “CHP-ready” small modular reactors (SMRs) at its 10-years of innovation launch on 21 November.
