SMRs and the Public Sector

Emerging technologies in the energy-generating resource space are inherently risky. Naturally, when we think about boundary-pushing advances in the energy industry, we should expect private investors to be reluctant to take on the burden of ushering these new technologies in. The case for small modular nuclear reactors (SMRs) is instructive for why the public sector should take the lead in nurturing their development.

The Case for Grid Thought

This holism is a way of thinking about energy policy that takes an holistic view of the electric grid as both the network of transmission and distribution lines knitted together by substations, but also the sources and sinks of the electrons. To get the decarbonized energy future we desire we need to adopt a Grid Thought mindset.
