Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) seem to be all the rage these days with lots of articles and advertisements, conferences and tradeshows popping up; NRC meetings, twitters and tweets and YouTube videos to boot! What I am curious about is:
- Whether and when the NRC policy level regulatory conditions will change to actually be able to license one of these designs?
- What the economics will be like for an actual operation?
- When we might actually see one operate?
Call me curious!
