Already now, with their reactor still in the conceptual phase and years from commercialisation, they are receiving considerable interest from big players with unmet needs – unlikely to be filled by current technologies. These companies are willing to explore next-generation nuclear technologies to decarbonise their industries, despite the stigma that came from decades of an “anti-nuclear” narrative. Eirik passionately states, “Again, it is as if though the world is shifting – away from old fears and superstitions – towards combating climate change as quickly and efficiently as possible. It’s all very exciting, very inspiring, and very promising. The US once called on the world to use Atoms for Peace. Now we need to do it again for an equally noble cause – to re-think nuclear energy and halt global warming!”
