Availability using small reactor sited in deep underground cave was examined as a district heat supply system.From the viewpoint of a social acceptability, the contact points with a distributed small reactor system were examined to resolve a social structure-subject of a big city through investigation of the city environmental issue and city calamity. In order to estimate the scale of the heat source of a district heat supply system, a virtual city model was set up about 100,000 populations. It became clear that the heat can be supplied by installing two reactors with thermal-power 100MWt (MR-100G) in caves. Moreover, it turns out that the system will also function effectively for more than 40 years. The economic efficiency of this system was compared with the natural-gas boiler, and we confirmed that the district heat supply system by the small reactor is excellent especially for the case of long-term system operation.
