Tuesday 18 May, 14:00-16:00 CEST
IFNEC, in cooperation with the Nuclear Energy Agency, will organise the first webinar on ‘The Financing of SMRs: Challenges and Opportunities’ as part of the NEA – IFNEC Nuclear Financing Webinar Series on Tuesday 18 May, 14:00-16:00 CEST.
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) offer a number of specific features that may present benefits in terms of financing. However, until the SMR market reaches commercial maturity over the next decade, the benefits will remain theoretical. In the meantime, specific additional financial support will also be required for the financing of the first demonstration units. This webinar will focus on the discussion of these expected benefits, and on the potential paths forward for the financing of SMRs in different parts of the world. There will be interest to discuss potential impact of various business models for SMR ownership and financial engineering. The discussion will be moderated by Gloria Kwong, IFNEC, Head of Technical Secretariat.
