Advanced Reactors: Turning the Corner

A common misconception about advanced nuclear technologies is that they are largely conceptual and will not be commercialized in time to contribute to meeting near-term climate goals.

Terrestrial Energy signs engineering services contract with Hatch

Canada’s Terrestrial Energy said on 4 May that it had signed an engineering services contract with Hatch to support deployment of the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR).

Canada Embraces Nuclear Energy Expansion to Lower Carbon Emissions

“We don’t see a path where we reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 without nuclear,” said Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s natural-resources minister. “It is proven, it is tested and it is safe.

Atomic Heat in Small Packages Give Big Industry a Climate Option

Small modular reactors are drawing the attention of policy makers across the U.S. and Europe because of their versatility. They can deliver a steady flow of energy both in the form of heat and electricity.

Federal government invests in small nuclear reactors to help it meet net-zero 2050 target

The federal government says it's investing $20 million in the nuclear industry to help Canada meet its target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

In Boost to Canada’s Nuclear Roadmap, OPG Advances Work with Three SMR Developers

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) took another step to bolster plans to deploy small modular reactors (SMRs) in Ontario, announcing it is advancing engineering and design work with three major advanced nuclear reactor developers: GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH), Terrestrial Energy, and X-energy.
