But IV generation is not just a «small step» but a «giant leap» for nuclear technology. All of the six IV generation families require brand new materials, and very challenging solutions. Although no commercial plants are expected to be available before 2030, all the countries with a strong nuclear industry are trying to find their own way toward the future of nuclear energy. The race is open.
