All in all I remain convinced that SMR's are the answer to our energy problems. The problem is that our decisions, in that regard, have little to do with science or fact but "other things". I, however, have faith that eventually things may actually change. Unfortunately faith doesn't move mountains or humans determined to go with lies instead of facts.
I also believe that batteries are constantly getting better. Google "battery tech" so see what may be coming in the not so dim future in this regard. My personal suspicion is that, eventually, batteries will be available to run everything from running your house and virtually everything else. there will be some things that need more power, like large factories, etc. and that can be supplied with a modular reactor. We will need energy sources to keep batteries charged as well.
