The UK has 16 commercial-sized currently-operating nuclear reactors, and 14 of them are of the advanced gas-cooled reactor
(AGR) type, with reactors arranged in pairs at seven sites, two of them next door to each other in the Lancashire seaport of Heysham.
first gas-cooled reactor
module (385 mwe) would start up by 2025, and

Xcel closed this gas-cooled reactor
in 1989 after facing technical difficulties.
Starting in 1954, a number of reactors were connected to grids, including a small liquid metal reactor in the Soviet Union, a larger gas-cooled reactor
in the United Kingdom, and several small reactors of various types in the United States (including pressurized water, boiling water, and liquid-metal designs).
Contributors from Japan, the US, Europe, Australia, and Russia describe recent work in areas such as magnesium phosphate glasses for high level nuclear waste immobilization, public attitudes toward nuclear waste and siting policy, millimeter-wave monitoring for nuclear waste vitrification, and the application of gas-cooled reactor
technology to the design of accelerator driven systems for nuclear waste transmutation.
Tokai Power Plant started operating the graphite-moderated, carbon dioxide gas-cooled reactor
in 1966 as the first commercial nuclear power station in Japan.
Schultz was section leader in GA's High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor
(HTGR) Core Design Department, responsible for the reactor physics design of the 2000 and 4000 MW(t) HTGR.
At three advanced gas-cooled reactor
sites in the UK, Alstom calculates that its blades have boosted the efficiency of the high pressure units by nine per cent, and increased each turbine's output by 22 megawatts.
Modular High-Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor
(HTR) could fulfill the safety goals of Gen-IV nuclear reactors and its fuel characteristics provide high confidence in the practical elimination of large radioactive release from nuclear power plants.
NuScale and mPower are light-water reactors, while the NGNP is a gas-cooled reactor
. NuScale and mPower currently appear to be the most advanced in development, and at least one utility, the Tennessee Valley Authority, has expressed interest in the mPower concept.
