Advanced Nuclear Technologies and SMR Designs: Key considerations for organisations investing in energy

Developments in Advanced Nuclear Technologies (ANTs), and particularly in small modular reactor (SMR) design, are frequently defined as “game changing”.

Understanding quite how those “changes” affect investment decisions can be complex, particularly in a global energy sector that is experiencing immense uncertainty, risk and opportunities driven by national energy security concerns, global supply and price volatility, climate change and net zero targets.

Organisations that are considering investing in, supporting or working with ANTs are faced with a great deal of complexity and uncertainty.

This free webinar aims to clarify some key issues investors need to take into account. It will help organisations understand some of the important questions they need to ask in order to clarify decision making and reduce uncertainty.

Prospect Law’s nuclear energy specialists will highlight key considerations in nuclear regulation and licensing, nuclear waste management, and risk and liability:
