This week, U-Battery presented at the Canadian Nuclear Society’s (CNS) G4SR-2 Virtual Summit, which featured a number of industry, government and community partners from across Canada’s SMR ecosystem. The conference explored federal and provincial commitments toward the development and deployment of SMRs as part of Canada’s clean energy transformation, which is something that U-Battery is poised to play a key part in.
U-Battery General Manager, Steve Threlfall, was featured as a guest panellist during a plenary session on SMRs hosted by Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL).
Following the virtual summit, Steve said: “Through the development and deployment of our advanced SMR, U-Battery will contribute towards Canada’s commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, while enabling energy security, energy equity and environmental sustainability for all Canadians.”
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.
