In reaction to the announcement that funding has been secured to enable Small Modular Reactor delivery, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association said,

“Match funding for Rolls-Royce SMR sends a huge signal to private investors that the government wants SMRs alongside new large-scale stations to hit net zero. It also shows investors that the government believes in nuclear as a green technology.

“Britain is leading the way in developing this technology, and as we move towards a low-carbon world, there is real opportunity to export to international markets.”
