U-Battery at the Nuclear Engineering International’s (NEI) Small and Advanced Reactors Virtual Event

26 February 2021

U-Battery was pleased to attend and sponsor Nuclear Engineering International’s (NEI) Small and Advanced Reactors Virtual Event on 18 February 2021.

This event brought together nuclear reactor developers, utilities, regulators, suppliers, academics and the financial community to discuss the emerging role of small and advanced reactors in the low-carbon energy mix in various geographies.

U-Battery’s General Manager, Steve Threlfall, spoke at ‘The role of microreactors - potential markets and technology options’ panel discussion and he outlined how U-Battery’s modular, cogenerative, reactor technology will be developed and used to power and reduce carbon emissions for a variety of users, including foundation industries and remote communities in the UK and Canada. Over 500 attendees joined the panel discussion and the Q&A. 

As part of its sponsorship of the event, U-Battery ran a virtual expo booth that presented key materials relating to the technology. Over 300 attendees visited the booth to learn more about U-Battery.

U-Battery would like to thank NEI for the opportunity to sponsor and participate at this event.
