Techno-economic assessment of the feasibility of SMR technology for district heating in Finland

The webinar was organized by VTT on 24.11.2021.

The backbone of the future energy system in climate change mitigation dwells in finding and growing technology and business opportunities and synergies. Nuclear energy offers a key position in the ongoing efforts facing balance between emission reduction targets, economic feasibility and resilience of smart grids and energy systems.

Techno-economic assessments provide an overview of the small modular reactor (SMR) technology development and deployment and give input to practical business cases. These presentations give an overview of the investment modelling of SMRs for district heating in Finland and the power companies’ perspectives when SMRs are investable.
