The British government said on Friday it will invest 40 million pounds ($51 million) in developing and supporting small nuclear reactor projects. The government said 30 million pounds of funding will go to support three advanced modular reactor (AMR) projects in Oxfordshire, Cheshire and Lancashire in England.

They can be used in remote locations thanks to their size, and can produce enough energy to power anything from a small village to a medium-sized city.
