Assessing the Economic Promise of Small Modular Nuclear Reactors​

Are you interested in the future of nuclear power and how it can become more cost-effective and efficient?

In this e-book, we explore the promises and challenges of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and Microreactors (MRs). These technologies claim to reduce the cost of nuclear power and enhance the industry’s track record on serial production, shortened build times, and minimized downtime. 

Key insights include:

  • Cost Analysis: Understand how the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of SMRs and MRs varies, potentially offering 25% to 60% lower costs than large-scale reactors in the best-case scenarios.
  • Production Efficiency: Learn why larger reactors have the upper hand in achieving serial production benefits and why MRs might struggle to be cost-competitive.
  • Challenges: Discover the hurdles first-of-a-kind (FOAK) SMRs face, including higher initial costs, fuel supply challenges, and a lack of design standardization.

Learn more about the factors influencing cost savings and efficiency in nuclear power, and gain insights into the current state and future prospects of SMRs and MRs in the nuclear industry.
