The world faces a dual challenge of reducing emissions in the power sector while also providing the abundant energy needed for prosperity for everyone. Advanced nuclear may offer scalable, zero-carbon power, yet this new technology faces considerable resistance and skepticism.
Advanced nuclear designs being developed around the world may be highly suitable for applications in frontier and emerging markets. As this technology evolves and comes to market, it may be especially useful in helping to meet development, environmental, and security goals.
The Hub aims to create an information-rich environment for decision-making around the potential for new nuclear power designs and their applicability in markets with fast-growing energy demand.
