The benefits SMRs can bring to the UK and global decarbonisation, webinar

Watch this event

The decarbonisation agenda and commitments to net zero are causing a shift in the overall energy environment. As the world seeks to move away from fossil fuels, new clean technologies will be required at scale to deliver the energy needed across power, heat and transport. Clean electricity will have a key role to play.

In this webinar, Alan Woods, Director Strategy and Business Development - SMR at Rolls-Royce, will provide an overview of the UK SMR (small modular reactor) product being led by the company. He will outline the overall programme and the next steps for this UK domestic SMR solution.

This event is co-badged with IET.
