Canada Envisions Small Nuclear Reactors Producing Power And Hydrogen In Remote Towns

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Forbes.

The concept is you put small modular nuclear reactors of around 300 MW in a remote town or industrial site to provide electrical power, alongside wind and solar

Any excess power will be used to create hydrogen to power transport like vehicles and trains, so no power is wasted.

These reactors will be built in a factory and transported to site.

It may seem to be fantastical thinking, but I believe small modular reactors are a viable concept and used with hydrogen in remote locations could be application, that gets them started and acceptable.

Two years ago I wrote Small Modular Nuclear Reactors.

My views haven’t changed, except that adding the hydrogen generation improves the reasons to build them.
