The Energy White Paper, Powering our Net Zero Future (CP 337), published in December 2020 by HM Government, defines ‘advanced nuclear’ as small modular and advanced modular reactors, where advanced nuclear reactors are ‘Reactors which use novel cooling systems or fuels and may offer new functionalities (such as industrial process heat)’ and small modular reactors (SMRs) are: ‘…usually based on proven water-cooled reactors similar to current Nuclear Power station reactors, but on a smaller scale. They use nuclear fission to generate low-carbon electricity. SMRs are called modular reactors as their components can be manufactured in factories using innovative techniques and then transported to site to be assembled.’
