NuScale Power – A Scalable Clean Energy Solution

February 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Recent studies show that the addition of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) to the renewable energy mix offers the least cost path to achieving clean energy mandates. NuScale Power has developed and received NRC approval for its SMR technology with customers seeking to deploy the technology within this decade. The potential for hydrogen production as part of a NuScale Integrated Energy System provides an exciting opportunity for carbon reductions in both the industrial and transportation section. This presentation provides an overview of the NuScale technology and its path to commercialization.
