Those small scale reactors made a whole lot of sense to me. I don’t want to hide the fact that some people, that clearly know more about nuclear than I do, pointed out that there are some thorny problems. I hope they can be ironed out. But we should not lose sight of the classic modern reactor designs. Contrary to what many uninformed like to spread, they are very safe and very efficient if the regulatory beast can be tamed. If Trump took on the Compliance Industrial Complex he would help a lot more.
A new Trump administration policy enabling U.S. government financing for nuclear energy projects abroad could help accelerate the use of smaller reactors, a budding technology that supporters see as a lifeline for the struggling industry.
