Abstract

An account of two major strategic aspects to support the decision-making process in constructing small modular nuclear reactors is given utilizing the real options approach. One aspect focuses on the time to market with the relative stage-gate process while the other one focuses on the effect of a new plant considering the utility portfolio. Small modular reactors were also evaluated against other base-load power plants and showed the superior performance of small modular reactors when applied to the UK scenario.
