Subject: Tomorrow: Small Modular Reactors



Small Modular Reactors (SMR)
Thursday, June 19 | 3 pm ET/ 2 pm CT/ 1 pm MT/ Noon PT


Large commercial nuclear reactors generate 20% of the nation's electricity and contribute 60% of the nation's carbon-free electricity. Growing demand and a drive to use low-emission technologies bode well for the future of the domestic nuclear energy industry. However, an aging reactor fleet, rising costs, safety concerns, and increasing pressure from low-cost natural gas pose challenges. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) offer the potential to mitigate some of these challenges. This webinar will explore state and federal efforts to support development of SMR technologies.

  • Representative Cathrynn Brown, New Mexico

This webinar is part of the Spring Webinar Series hosted by NCSL's Natural Resources and Infrastructure Committee. All webinars are free and open to all attendees. Questions? Contact NCSL.
