US and UK Firms Join Hands to Work on Small and Modular Nuclear Reactors

It is interesting how US and British firms are now working hard to bring SMRs to the market, with a UK Pounds 250 million grant available from the British government to a company that could demonstrate capabilities in this area. I know from talking to a relative who is a scientist with the Indian Atomic Energy Commission, that Russia and India are working on modifying a nuclear submarine / aircraft carrier engine to achieve the same results. It will be interesting to see where these experiments go, because they will help expand electric mobility substantially in areas where solar or wind energy may not be easy to tap. Watch this space!
