Summer 2020

With the current challenges we face amid a changing climate, it is more important than ever to provide carbon-free solutions that meet diverse global energy needs. As the September 2020 date for U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approval of our small modular reactor (SMR) design nears, NuScale is the U.S.’s leading near-term deployable and commercially viable SMR-based nuclear generation solution that is ready and up to the task.

In the featured topic for this summer issue of NUCLEUS, we discuss the flexibility of the NuScale power plant to enable more wind, solar, and hydropower generation and accelerate the global transition to clean energy. In our program update, we highlight the unique features of NuScale’s SMR technology that offer a new level of nuclear power plant resiliency, including climate resilience to natural events such as hurricanes and floods. The world has experienced a dramatic shift from the face-to-face interactions of pre-COVID-19 times to the predominantly virtual environments within which we currently interact. NuScale is grateful for and inspired by the ways that the global community continues to work together to advance clean, carbon-free energy solutions and in our collaboration spotlight, we share some of the ways we’ve stayed connected with industry colleagues and the public over the past few months.

I am pleased to share this summer issue of our NUCLEUS newsletter. Every step we take together brings us closer toward a clean energy future for all humankind. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to this endeavor.

Warm Regards,

John Hopkins
Chairman and CEO of NuScale Power
