UK SMRs 'Crushed'
Great News!

"A leading nuclear engineer has slammed the government for “crushing” the UK’s modular nuclear programme.

Nuclear engineer Andrew Dawson’s report Small Modular Nuclear: Crushed at birth criticises the government for effectively ending the development of small modular reactors in the UK.

Published by the Global Warming Policy foundation, Dawson claims that new funding for feasibility studies into a range of new nuclear technologies will “likely to be the end of the SMRs in the UK”.

The report adds: “When George Osborne announced the SMR competition in 2015, it was about identifying SMR technologies that could be deployed in the near-term.

“But in its announcement last week, BEIS made it clear that it would only back ‘blue-skies’ projects, some of which are not SMRs, and none of which have any hope of breaking ground in the next few decades."
