Request for proposals to identify the technology requirements for alternative small-scale thermal and nuclear plant power generation technologies
ETI launches Request for Proposals to identify the technology requirements for alternative small-scale thermal and nuclear plant power generation technologies.
This is a request for proposals for a new knowledge gathering project. The scope of the project is to capture the high level technical performance characteristics and business-case parameters of small thermal plants, which will be of value to the potential future UK energy system and should also be of commercial interest to developers and investors.
The project is intended to include the potential contribution from small modular nuclear reactors, which will also enable comparison with other small-scale plant such as those powered by bio-fuelled thermal power. In addition to electricity generation, such future plants may have additional roles in energising heat networks and in energy system balancing through flexible power delivery. The project outputs will help enable the subsequent comparison of a range of specific technologies.
