Dept. of Energy: "Nuclear is getting smaller … and it’s opening up some big opportunities for the industry."
"A handful of microreactor designs are under development in the United States, and they could be ready to roll out within the next decade."
"These plug-and-play reactors will be small enough to transport by truck and could help solve energy challenges in a number of areas, ranging from remote commercial or residential locations to military bases."
Utility Dive: "The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) released a final safety evaluation report on Friday for NuScale Power's small modular reactor (SMR) design. The NRC's staff determined that the design met all the safety requirements for the design certification stage of licensing."
