The dawn of small and micro nuclear reactors brings with it the promise of
reliable, commercially viable energy in a safer form factor. A new generation of smaller reactors will gain traction in 2021 and demonstrate the big advantages of a smaller approach.
The new designs of small modular reactors (SMRs) and micro modular reactors (MMRs) provide inherent safety. The most advanced of these reactors feature walk-away designs. In the case of an accident, the physics of the reactor do not allow it to melt down, as all heat dissipates passively into the environment, no matter the scenario.
