The Nuclear Fallacy: Why Small Modular Reactors Can't Compete With Renewable Energy

The Nuclear Fallacy: Why Small Modular Reactors Can’t Compete With Renewable Energy

One of the topics in my recent discussion with Bent Flyvbjerg (Linkedin, Twitter), probably the leading global academic in megaproject failures and successes, someone who has consulted to over 100 projects costing more than a billion USD, was the optimization of modularity in scaling. The discussion point was about small modular nuclear reactors vs wind and solar energy.

The graphic below is from Flyvbjerg’s upcoming book, co-authored with Dan Gardner, How Big Things Get Done: The Surprising Factors That Determine the Fate of Every Project, from Home Renovations to Space Exploration…
