Ever since the nuclear accident in Fukushima – if not before – the nuclear industry has been in crisis. James Temple, the senior editor for energy at the MIT Technology Review, portrays the small module reactors (SMRs) that may swoop to the industry’s rescue. However, before SMRs can do any swooping, they still need to overcome some challenges. getAbstract recommends this article to hesitant supporters of nuclear energy and anyone interested in future energy supply.
In this summary, you will learn
- How small modular reactors (SMRs) may reinvigorate the nuclear industry and
- What obstacles companies face in developing SMRs.
