5.4.7 Nuclear Facility Design Standardization

LPDD Recommendation: “NRC and the federal government must encourage—or even require—standardization of nuclear power plant designs to the maximum extent feasible.”

LPDD Recommendation: Congress could provide incentives for “first-to-market” designs, and provide that once a new nuclear power plant design is licensed and deployed successfully, subsequent developers would be eligible for tax incentives or access to low-cost financing for using the same design.”
