Inquiry: Small nuclear power

The Energy and Climate Change Committee has announced its inquiry into small nuclear power.

"Nuclear power stations have been growing in size, from a typical size in the 1950s of 60 MWe to modern plants up to 1.6 GWe. At the same time many smaller nuclear power reactors have been built for naval use.

The International Atomic Energy Agency defines 'small' as under 300 MWe, and up to about 700 MWe as 'medium' yet this includes radically different technologies. In 2011 there were 125 small and medium units in operation and 17 under construction, in 28 countries, totalling 57 GWe capacity."

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 16 April 2014.
