The financing of SMRs – challenges and opportunities
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) offer a number of specific features that may present benefits in terms of financing. First, SMRs are expected to be more affordable as the overall capital outlay required per reactor will be lower than for large units, reducing the overall capital at risk for investors. Second, SMRs are expected to have shorter construction duration, further reducing the overall cost of financing. Third, for multi-unit SMRs, the ability to add modules and start generating electricity incrementally can reduce both upfront investment and capital risk. Fourth, the ability to add modules incrementally could also allow investors to adjust to changes in electricity demand and cash flow/financing availability, thus improving the management of financial risks. However, until the SMR market reaches commercial maturity over the next decade, these benefits remain theoretical. In the meantime, specific additional financial support will also be required for the financing of the first demonstration units. This webinar will focus on the discussion of these expected benefits, and on the potential paths forward for the financing of SMRs in different parts of the world. There will be interest to discuss potential impact of various business models for SMR ownership and financial engineering.
