Energy for Growth Hub
Future of Energy Tech

Advanced Nuclear

Smaller, safer, and zero-carbon. Next generation nuclear tech may be especially suited for emerging economies.

The Issue

The world faces a dual challenge of reducing emissions in the power sector while also providing the abundant energy needed for prosperity for everyone.

Advanced nuclear may offer reliable zero-carbon power to complement intermittent resources, but this new technology faces considerable resistance and skepticism.


Advanced nuclear designs being developed around the world feature passive safety features, modular designs, and smaller scale, making them especially suitable for applications in frontier and emerging markets. But questions about cost and safety are barriers to scalable deployment.

Our Approach

The Hub aims to create an information-rich environment for decision-making around the potential for new nuclear power designs and their applicability in markets with fast-growing energy demand.
