Multiple advanced reactor developers have announced international demonstration projects to be built in the late 2020s and early 2030s. These nuclear reactors will provide the licensing, construction, and operational basis for rapid commercial expansion of advanced nuclear energy globally in the mid-2030s and beyond. Technology, business, and regulatory lessons learned from first-of-a-kind (FOAK) projects will facilitate lower costs and shorter construction timelines for subsequent nth-of-a-kind (NOAK) reactors due to wide-scale deployment and technological learning. European and Asian utilities and other customers that gain early experience with FOAK or early NOAK projects will be in competitive positions to become technology leaders.
