Global demand for clean firm power and heat is rapidly growing—driven not only by urgency for climate action, but also as countries prioritize energy security and seek alternatives to Russian energy sources. Advanced small modular reactors (SMRs) are uniquely suited to meet this growing demand, given their potential scalability and flexibility in use cases. Advanced reactor technologies were originally conceived through research done at US national laboratories, providing US developers unique access to data and resources from this research.
