SMR technology ecosystem for district heating deployment in Finland: challenges and opportunities

The webinar was organized by VTT on 2.2.2022.

The global energy market is in a state of change due to the need to transfer from carbon-intensive sources to low carbon technologies. In Finland, espeically the district heating market is seen as a potential field to reduce greenhouse emissions. To introduce new emerging technologies to the energy market, new technology ecosystems and supply chains must be built.

The SMR ecosystem webinar aims to identify challenges and opportunities for the Finnish industry in building ecosystems and supply chains for emerging small modular reactor markets. Special emphasis is given to SMR technology for district heating.
