Here’s what the attendees had to say:

  • INL

    "A strong focus on non-emitting, reliable, and resilient energy generation is a necessity in planning future energy systems around the world. The SMR Summit provides an excellent venue for interactions among international vendors, utilities, and decision makers that can make the dream of a low-carbon world a future reality. I am excited to be a part of that discussion!"

    - Shannon Bragg-Sitton, Ph.D., Lead, Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems at Idaho National Laboratory
  • EXIM

    "I'm greatly looking forward to understanding the opportunities ahead for SMR development at the conference, specifically where U.S. goods and services are featured."

    - Michael Whalen, VP Structured Finance Division at the Export-Import Bank of the United States
  • Ellis and Watts

    "Indirect costs such as engineering, site preparation, installation and interest during construction dominate the capital cost of new nuclear builds. This workshop promises to explore how SMRs could reduce such costs by changing the deployment paradigm for nuclear power plants."

    - Jacopo Buongiorno, TEPCO Professor and Associate Department Head, Nuclear Science and Engineering, Director, Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems (CANES) at MIT
  • SNC Lavalin

    "The SMR conference was very informative and covered different levels of stakeholders. Attendance and topics variety were great"

    - SNC Lavalin
  • EPRI

    "The event was very informative and worth the trip to Atlanta. I look forward to the opportunity to attend in the future."

    - EPRI
  • Ellis and Watts

    "The conference was a great use of my time and my company's investment. The diversity of the topics and attendees kept the event engaging and educational. We'll return in the future."

    - Ellis and Watts
  • Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power

    "Great to get various information about the SMR development from a variety of experts"
