U-Battery joins other nuclear sector organisations in welcoming the release of ‘A Call to Action: A Canadian Roadmap for Small Modular Reactors’, and the Canadian federal government’s leadership in advancing nuclear energy innovation.
Innovation is the key to meeting the challenges of rising energy demand needs and reducing emissions. The Canadian Roadmap for Small Modular Reactors demonstrates that broad-ranging collaboration can yield powerful results.
U-Battery is an early-mover in the small modular reactor (SMR) landscape and offers a competitive, clean energy solution that can provide a secure, low-carbon, cost-effective and safe source of electricity and heat.
Steve Threlfall, U-Battery General Manager, said:
“U-Battery’s SMR technology will help address energy security and enable remote communities to move away from carbon-intensive diesel fuel. We look forward to working with the federal government, Canada’s energy sector, community and industry stakeholders as we continue to explore the important benefits of SMR 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.
