New study on Small Modular Reactors (SMR) in Estonia by Madis Vasser


The study gives a brief overview of the history of nuclear energy in Estonia – the Soviet era plans, the joint failure of the baltic states and the rise of the current private push for nuclear. It then details how the nuclear meme has entered into governmental planning documents. Following this, some fresh reports specifically on Estonian SMRs are unpacked in greater detail. The report ends with takeaways and generalizations of the Estonian experience for the wider CEE region – while every country is certainly different, the arguments for and against SMRs are often similar.
