Advanced Nuclear Skills and Innovation: heat exchanger challenge

Challenge briefing webinar – Advancing heat exchangers, energy management and conversion systems for advanced nuclear technologies



On behalf of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL), Game Changers are inviting proposals for innovative ideas which could advance technology for extracting and managing the heat from ANTs. This includes developing a better understanding of the requirements placed on such systems by energy conversion systems and reactors.

Applications are therefore welcome that cover systems such as:

Heat exchangers (e.g. ceramic boilers for high temperature applications, their materials and layout)

Manifolds capable of diverting the heat from the same reactor to various different energy conversion or use systems (e.g. materials, control systems, safety aspects)

Energy conversion systems in terms of the requirements that they place on any element of the heat transfer or management systems (e.g. the requirements from electrolysers or the intended industrial process end use

The requirements advanced reactors could place on heat transfer and management systems due to operation at elevated temperatures and pressures and the use of novel cooling fluids and/or fuel

Join our briefing webinar for full details of this opportunity and information on how to apply for feasibility project funding.

The event is finished.
