“How do we see the future of small modular reactors (SMRs) at Fortum?”
-arranged in cooperation with Fortum
At Fortum, small modular reactors have been part of the nuclear power R&D programme for several years now. We see small modular reactors as part of a nuclear power future, and we are involved in various national and international projects to help accelerate the development of and the opportunities to utilise small modular reactors.
Sign up for the pre-webinar to hear more about the latest development insights of the SMRs!

“Innovations for the decarbonizing of industries and the society”
– arranged in cooperation with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
In order to significantly decrease the consumption of fossil sources and the carbon dioxide emissions, both the energy sector and the industries have to be decarbonized. This on one hand requires new innovations and on the other hand opens new business opportunities.
Various co-generation options can be considered for power plants, in which they produce not only electrical power but also heat, hydrogen or chemicals, perhaps dynamically according to market demand. The planning of such sector coupling concepts requires understanding of each sector, as well as tools and methods to support the system-level control and optimization.
This webinar will present views from the research concerning the decarbonization of urban energy systems and industries. This includes discussion on key areas relevant for co-generation and sector coupling concepts: district heating, hydrogen and conversions (Power-to-X, P2X).
