Our landmark Nuclear Sector Deal outlined a new framework designed to enable the development of small and advanced modular reactors in the UK. Our aim is to encourage the industry to bring forward technically and commercially viable small reactor projects to a vibrant UK marketplace. We believe the market is best-placed to identify the most promising designs. As an important centre of the nuclear industry, Cumbria should be well placed to actively participate in the development of modular reactors.
