Kärnfull Next signs a partnership with Steady Energy

Kärnfull Next has formed a strategic partnership with Steady Energy to introduce SMRs for district heating in Sweden.

The collaboration leverages Kärnfull’s innovative financing structures and delivery models to bring Steady Energy’s world-leading district heating reactors to Sweden.

Kärnfull Next aims to have the first commercial SMR operational at a new nuclear site in Sweden by the early 2030s.

According to the partners, Sweden’s district heating consumption totals some 50 TWh per year, two-thirds of which comes from biomass, with fuel costs rising sharply in recent years. Generally, the future of biomass within district heating is debated, not least since it is seen to have more valuable alternative uses. Additionally, the combustion of biomass leads to the emission of biogenic greenhouse gases.
