Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Issues Invitation for SMRs at CNL-managed site
Canadian Nuclear Laboratories announced that it has set a goal of demonstrating the commercial viability of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) by 2026. The excerpts from the announcement is provided in italicized text below.
Given the smaller physical size and electrical output, SMRs could be suitable for applications that require a small footprint or a relatively small power source. As a low-carbon energy source, SMRs have the potential to bring positive economic benefits to Canada, align with Canada’s commitment to fight climate change, could have important applications for remote communities, and have the potential to enhance nuclear safety through next generation nuclear technology.
