Mini Nuclear Reactors Offer Promise of Cheaper, Clean Power

Mini Nuclear Reactors Offer Promise of Cheaper, Clean Power

Daniel Michaels on The Wall Street Journal highlights how small modular reactors (SMRs) could be the future of clean power.

The C3 Take
  • SMRs offer all of the benefits of nuclear energy—safety, reliability, and clean energy—at a lower cost than traditional nuclear power plants.
  • Through a simpler regulatory process and increased private sector involvement, America can continue to be a leader in SMR and low carbon energy technology.

“The pitch: small modular reactors, or SMRs, that can be housed in compact containment structures and operate safely with less shielding and oversight. SMRs could allow power plants to shed their huge hourglass-shaped cooling towers and, in some designs, the reactors would be immersed in water to prevent overheating.”
