The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy's Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) Research, Development and Demonstration Programme is conducting market engagement before its next phase of work.
The aim of the Programme is to demonstrate that high temperature gas reactors (HTGRs) can produce high temperature heat which could be used for low carbon hydrogen production, process heat for industrial and domestic use and cost-competitive electricity generation.
BEIS plans to procure work under Phase A of the Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) Research, Development and Demonstration Programme. We have published a Prior Information Notice which sets out our intention to launch a formal Invitation To Tender (ITT) for Phase A in Spring 2022.
Before they publish the ITT, BEIS is carrying out market engagement on our proposed approach which is set out in this document.
