Status of district heating reactor design in Finland

The webinar was organized by VTT on 15.6.2021.

Low carbon district heating applications are currently a hot topic in Finland and in many other countries. One potential solution to the problem can be small modular reactors (SMR) developed solely to the purpose of heat production. Such a solution simplifies the potential designs compared to electricity production. Needs in different countries can also differ for example in size and climate conditions.
