UPower technology enables an always on, container-sized, truly carbon-free and emission-free nano-nuclear battery for remote and distributed generation where energy costs can exceed 30 cents/kWh, and power is needed 24/7. The generator is a containerized unit that provides over a decade of energy without refueling, and can generate electricity for 40% less than competing technologies in these markets. The UPower generator is powered by a unique compact, solid state, micro reactor that produces over 1 MW and can cogenerate process heat.
UPower strategy is its truly modular technology which enables the ultimate in lean development and in lean manufacturing.
UPower reactors don't have coolant flowing through them, don't have pumps, and don't have external pipes- basically a "nuclear battery." UPower generators are based on technologies with decades of operational success, meaning UPower generators provide the technological breakthrough that can cut all carbon emissions from remote generation with a technology that is cost-efficient and works today.
