UK Government invests £40m to develop next-gen nuclear tech

A majority of the funding will support three Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) projects, which are much smaller than traditional nuclear energy power plants

Government offers up to £44m for advanced and mini nuclear plants

The UK Government is providing up to £44 million for small and advanced modular reactors (AMR) feasibility and development programme. AMRs differ from conventional reactors , which use pressurised or boiling water for primary cooling. They aim to maximise the amount of off-site factory fabrication. Small modular reactors use existing or new nuclear technology scaled […]
