Kairos Power is a nuclear energy technology and engineering company whose mission is to enable the world’s transition to clean energy with the ultimate goal of dramatically improving people’s quality of life while protecting the environment. This goal will be accomplished through the commercialization of the Kairos Power fluoride salt-cooled, high-temperature reactor (KP-FHR) that can be deployed with robust safety and at affordable cost. Our schedule is driven by the goal of a U.S. demonstration plant before 2030 and rapid deployment thereafter. The challenge is great, but so too is the opportunity.
