Rolls-Royce SMR – powering decarbonisation across heavy industry

Thursday 15th September 2022

Theatre :  Sustainability and Circular Economy  Supply Chain, Trade and Policy 


Compact nuclear power stations can help us decarbonise our energy production.

We are leading a consortium developing power plants that generate electricity using a small modular reactor (SMR). Fleets of SMRs have the potential to provide increased stability and security of supply to electricity grids alongside other sources including renewables. The technology also opens nuclear power up to new opportunities and applications.

The session includes:

  1. Rolls-Royce SMR overview
  2. Rolls-Royce SMR manufacturing innovation (incl. support from the supply chain)
  3. Rolls-Royce SMR – off-grid applications (incl. hydrogen production)
