Interesting article written by a graduate student in the UK. I am not sure I agree with the simplistic safety analysis or the capital investment analysis. I believe both are a lot more complex than what is presented here, but it's a descent overview. ... gy-future/

Up until a few months ago, I was very optimistic regarding the future of SMRs. Not so any more. I have been following them for years and I fear that the suppliers may have fallen short of proving their economic sustainability. That, plus the Japanese accident and the NRC in-fighting over the past year or so, I think have seriously set back SMRs. IMO, anyway.
