Industrial Impact

The adoption of SMRs in data centers is reshaping industrial dynamics, offering a sustainable energy solution with significant business implications. SMRs provide a reliable, low-carbon power source for data centers, aligning with corporate sustainability goals and regulatory requirements. This shift toward cleaner energy not only enhances environmental stewardship but also strengthens operational resilience by reducing dependence on traditional power grids. Additionally, the deployment of SMRs fosters collaboration among key industry players, including technology providers, energy companies, and regulatory authorities. Such partnerships drive innovation, streamline regulatory compliance, and accelerate the integration of SMRs into existing infrastructure. Overall, the industrial impact of SMRs in the data center domain underscores the transformative potential of sustainable energy solutions in driving business growth and resilience.

In 2028, the global small modular reactor market for data centers is expected to reach a valuation of $38.3 million. Over the forecast period, the market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 48.72%, reaching a value of $278.4 million by 2033. This surge in market value is primarily attributed to the escalating demand for clean energy solutions, the continuous expansion of data center facilities worldwide, and the increasing adoption of sustainability practices across various industries. As organizations prioritize environment-friendly energy sources and seek to enhance their operational resilience, the adoption of small modular reactors in data centers is expected to witness significant growth, driving the market forward.

Hyperscale Data Centers to Dominate the Global Small Modular Reactor Market for Data Centers (by Application)

The hyperscale data centers segment leads the global small modular reactor market for data centers, driven by increasing demand for cleaner energy in data management, cloud services, and digital transformation. Recent developments highlight the importance of Hyperscale data centers in this market.

For instance, in April 2023, Green Energy Partners (GEP) proposed that the Surry Green Energy Center (SGEC) in the U.S. be powered by new small modular reactors (SMRs) and green hydrogen for backup power. The project aimed to develop on-site nuclear power with up to six 250MW SMRs.

Similarly, in February 2023, Dominion Energy announced a plan to build a data center campus adjacent to its Millstone Nuclear Power Station in central Connecticut. With over 2 GW of available power, developer NE Edge is set to construct two data center buildings, with the first offering over one million square feet of space and the second 400,000 square feet.

These initiatives enable domestic and short-distance energy distribution, with the transportation of SMR-produced energy being the most viable method. Compared to traditional energy sources, transporting energy from SMRs for short distances offers benefits such as lower energy consumption and simpler infrastructure requirements. SMRs also excel in handling and storage, making them the preferred choice for applications needing short-distance transportation of this high-potential energy source.

Segmentation 2: by Reactor Type

  • Water-Cooled Reactors
  • Liquid Metal-Cooled Fast Neutron Spectrum Reactors
  • Molten Salt Reactors
  • High-Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactors

Segmentation 3: by Region

  • North America - U.S. and Canada
  • Europe - Russia, France, U.K., Italy, and Rest-of Europe
  • Asia-Pacific - China, Japan, South Korea, and Rest-of-Asia-Pacific
  • Rest-of-the-World - Argentina, South Africa, and Other

North America is expected to play a pivotal role in shaping the global small modular reactor (SMR) market for data centers due to its increasing energy demands and the rising prominence of SMRs as a cleaner energy source. The U.S., which is home to some of the world's leading SMR developers, is a key contributor to the SMR market for data centers in North America. In 2023, NuScale received design certification for its 77 Mega Watt (MW) uprated design, which is currently under review with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Standard Power, a provider of infrastructure as a service to advanced data processing companies, has chosen NuScale Power's SMR technology to power two facilities it plans to develop in the U.S. If Standard Power's initial plans for the two facilities are ultimately realized, NuScale would provide 24 units of 77 MW modules for a combined capacity of 1,848 MW. Besides the U.S., other North American countries are also implementing aggressive growth plans to enhance their SMR production. For instance, the Canadian government has been actively supporting the development and deployment of SMRs. These initiatives present significant opportunities for companies in the SMR market for data centers in North America. Despite challenges such as high installation costs and regulatory issues, North America's proactive approach is evident in its ongoing research and development efforts in SMR technology, positioning the region as a leader in the global SMR market for data centers.

Market Challenges: High Upfront Costs and Infrastructural Constraints

One significant challenge facing the small modular reactor (SMR) market for data centers is the existing infrastructure limitations, particularly in rural areas where grid coverage is limited or non-existent. Connecting data centers to the grid in these regions often entails high costs due to the need for extensive transmission lines and grid capacity upgrades. Additionally, as per the data released (2021) by the International Atomic Energy Agency, regulatory guidelines stipulate that a single power plant should represent no more than 10% of the total installed grid capacity, further complicating grid connection efforts.

Market Opportunities: Surge in Investment by Data Center Providers

The increasing investments in edge data center development highlight a substantial market opportunity fueled by the need for localized data processing, minimized latency, and enhanced support for IoT, AI, and 5G innovations. This movement toward market decentralization seeks to improve connectivity, uphold data sovereignty, and elevate the digital service experience. For instance, on February 7, 2024, Azora, in partnership with Core Capital, disclosed plans to allocate over $530 million toward the creation of six edge data centers across Spain and Portugal, boasting a total capacity of 60 MW. This initiative vividly demonstrates the critical importance attributed to edge data centers within the digital realm.

Moreover, in May 2023, CTRLS Datacenters Ltd. committed $18.1 million to a new edge data center in Odisha, India, marking a significant step in tapping into the small modular reactor market for data center potential. This investment, set to unfold over a decade, aims to foster strategic partnerships to expand digital infrastructure.
