After the State of the Union address, Energy Secretary Steven Chu hosted the Department of Energy's inaugural Energy Matters live chat on Wednesday to discuss President Obama's clean energy and innovation agenda.

Energy Secretary Steven Chu was asked a question about small modular reactors and as it turns out, he is a “big fan”.  He also mentions in this video of the discussion, that he would like to see the United States lead in developing this technology since other countries have taken the lead for the larger nuclear power plant reactor designs.
