About the Event
There is growing interest in small modular reactors (SMRs) and advanced reactors (ARs) around the world, with more than 50 designs at various development stages. SMRs can help address the need for flexible power generation for a wide range of users and applications, with the global market estimated to be worth £250-400bn by 2035.
Nuclear Engineering International’s SMR/AR event will look at the development plans and licensing activities for a range of small and advanced reactor technologies. It will cover all aspects of industry, with insight from reactor developers, utilities, regulators, supply chain, academics and the financial community.
Interviews with key industry figures and a range of engaging panel discussions will bring the latest progress and innovations in the global SMR/AR market straight to your desktop.
Meet fellow professionals, share best practices, insight and thought-leadership with industry influencers.
