Stout has a minor position. More importantly you dont see SMRs mentioned in any TVA future plan.

...and your current position with TVA is ???

if I was to glean anything from Stout's .ppt presentations it would be that various military and govt. concerns should site SMRs on govt. property and divorce themselves completely from the commercial grid,....

not good for commercial nukes, pretty good for civil defense jobs,....

 OK not inconsistent from what I have heard here that it would be primarily a Lab power source and demonstration of feasibility. Promotion for many of the SMR uses are to fit a future grid as part of the baseline or industrial power whose cost can be predicted over decades. Not having to stockpile fuel and not have to negotiate with local governments and utilities would be a plus for a flexible load center like an SMR.

Have you noticed the reactors that are being closed are SMALL reactors or has this Inconvenient Truth escaped you?

I suspect all the old dinosaurs of the nuclear world will close in the future. I am (dreaming) looking at the future of power in general, the grid will need new thinking not the 5 monkey scenario. I don't claim that I am all knowing but do see the possibilities.

Has nothing to do with me or anyone being a dinosaur. It has to do with economics. If 25 people can create 500 of an item or the same 25 can create a 1000 of the same item in the same time which do you choose?

I was talking about the older nuclear plant designs, but take it as you like.

Watts Barr is on line, Vogtle will probably go on line, SMRs are in design and in the approval process. How is that for facts.


Vogtle will not probably go on line,...
