Work has begun with ‘interested parties’ Kärnfull Next plans to deploy GEH’s BWRX-300 reactor technology in Scandinavia. Courtesy Kärnfull Next. A nuclear project development company established in Sweden has signed an agreement to work with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) on the deployment of its BWRX-300 small modular reactor technology in Scandinavia.

The cleantech startup company Kärnfull Next said it has secured initial funding from Corespring Invest, an investment portfolio with a long track record of successful investments in cleantech and fossil-free energy sources.

It said preparations of planned SMR development sites around Sweden will continue in parallel with investor discussions.

Work has already begun with a handful of “interested parties” throughout Sweden but for these new reactors to become a reality, current legislation will need to be reviewed, Kärnfull Next said in a statement.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) in its latest World Energy Outlook (WEO), published on 13 October, says transition to a clean energy system is progressing too slowly for the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. However, the report provides analysis of how the world can still move towards a pathway that would have a good chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C but sees no key role for nuclear power.

The transition to a clean energy system is still progressing too slowly for the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says in the latest edition of its World Energy Outlook, published today. However, it says a new energy economy is emerging around the world as solar, wind, electric vehicles and other low-carbon technologies flourish. The report provides analysis of how the world can still move towards a pathway that would have a good chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
