The UK government has published a policy paper outlining the first phase of a competition to "identify the best value small modular reactor (SMR) design" for potential deployment. The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) also released "eligibility criteria" for the first phase, which it said "will be the first opportunity to engage in discussions with government" in a "structured dialogue". An 'SMR roadmap' will be developed in parallel with the first phase, which the DECC said "will summarise the evidence so far, set out the policy framework and assess the potential, for one or more possible pathways for SMRs to help the UK achieve its energy objectives, while delivering economic benefits".
