NuScale was borne from research funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through Idaho National Environment & Engineering Laboratory, with support from Oregon State University. Today, the company is nearing certification from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for its small modular nuclear reactor technology.
What’s a small modular reactor? In this episode, Dr. Reyes explains the technology, how it’s different, and how it can provide more than just carbon-free power. He also discusses NuScale’s relationship with Oregon State University’s stellar engineering department, and how NuScale’s energy work could benefit Oregon.
