Breaking Through to Deployment

It’s been a long journey, but we are closer than ever before to deploying the next generation of advanced reactors. New, innovative designs with enhanced safety and improved economics, including small modular and micro reactors, should be under construction in only a few years. Speakers from across the new reactor community will address how we got here, what we’ve learned, and how we keep the momentum going to assure success.
