The Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, HM Government

Rolls-Royce is a great British company, which is why we previously made up to £210 million available from the advanced nuclear fund to Rolls-Royce SMR Ltd to support the development of its small modular reactor design.

Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Minister for Nuclear and Networks), Andrew Bowie MP

SMRs are one of the most advanced nuclear power technologies in the world. Rather than having to be built on site, they're smaller and can be made in factories, transforming how power stations are built by making construction faster and less expensive. This tech could result in billions of pounds of public and private sector investment.
