The UK Government has confirmed today that U-Battery has been successfully selected to receive funding in the Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) Programme.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is investing up to £44 million in AMR feasibility and development work through the programme, with the aims of generating low cost electricity which is delivered flexibly, and providing other functionality such as the provision of heat for domestic or industrial use.
“U-Battery is delighted to have received the green light to progress to Phase 1 of the Government’s AMR Programme. This will involve receiving a first tranche of funding to produce a feasibility study in which we outline the commercial and technical case for U-Battery.
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.
