The POWER Interview: X-energy’s Plan for Sustained Nuclear Growth

March 31, 2021

The global push for carbon neutral and zero-emissions power generation has brought renewed interest in nuclear power, particularly for smaller units that are scalable and in some cases mobile, able to provide power in remote areas.

Analysts say smaller nuclear reactors are more cost-effective, as they’re considered a more manageable investment for power generators as opposed to construction of large reactors. They also can help repurpose retiring fossil fuel generation, with small modular reactors (SMRs) able to be positioned at brownfield sites such as decommissioned coal-fired power plants.
