“The construction and commissioning of Hinkley C will also provide a focus for the reinvigoration of the UK nuclear industry and the associated skills development necessary for future nuclear technologies such as small modular reactors, which could be built in a factory and transported to a location, making them cheaper to make and run, (SMRs) and Generation IV reactors, which would use nuclear waste from other reactors to power them, making them more efficient, and potentially even safer than current versions.” (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/newssummary/news_2-8-2016-14-28-7)
