Small and Medium Reactor (SMR) Industry to grow in the Global Nuclear Power Sector
The SMRs are used for supplying electricity in small pockets with high demand in many countries. Mostly the small reactors are used for electricity production, district heating and co- generation to produce both electricity and heat. While the ongoing global economic slowdown poses challenges to the long term huge investment plans in the global nuclear power sector, small reactors with relatively smaller investment will be economically viable. The SMRs are also suitable in countries which have small pockets of increasing electricity demand. Although, the overnight construction costs of small reactors are relatively greater than large reactors (LR), the huge capital cost of the latter owing to longer construction period would offset this, making the SMRs more competitive.
