U-Battery is featured in the latest edition of Power Egineering International magazine in a piece by General Manager, Steve Threlfall.
The article highlights the progress the advanced technology has made this year and its many benefits, both economical and environmental.
For example, in the UK, U-Battery can support the decarbonisation of several strategic heavy and energy-intensive industries, including the paper, glass, steel, ceramics, minerals and chemicals sectors.
Steve said: "As a society, we know the threat posed by climate change. We must take steps now to decarbonise our economy and position ourselves to deliver on net zero by 2050. This will enable us to mitigate the worst damage from climate change, as well as creating economic opportunities throughout the UK.
"The best way to achieve this is through proven low-carbon technologies, such as nuclear and renewables, as well as innovative low-carbon technologies."
U-Battery is an advanced/small modular reactor, capable of providing a low-carbon, cost-effective, locally embedded and reliable source of power and heat for energy intensive industry and remote locations. It is being developed by Urenco in collaboration with a number of supporting organisations and has received funding from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's Energy Innovation Portfolio.
