Nuclear Energy Is Back. Now, Let’s See Canada’s Offer

By Simon Irish

There was some familiarity in the cycle of hope and disappointment we have grown used to at the UN climate meetings known as COP, but one thing was very different at COP26 in Glasgow – nuclear energy finally took its seat at the table.

Nuclear energy’s presence at COP26 came as a double whammy.

Choosing Canadian Generation IV SMR Would Reward Ontario with Once-in-a-Generation Economic Windfall: Hatch Study

Choosing Canadian Generation IV SMR Would Reward Ontario with Once-in-a-Generation Economic Windfall: Hatch Study

· Next-generation (“Generation IV”) nuclear reactor power plants have enormous potential to replace fossil fuel plants in Canada’s and the world’s energy grids

· Exporting commercial nuclear power plant technology could contribute more to the Canadian economy than automobile manufacturing by 2050

· Only Generation IV reactor technology will dramatically improve the economics of nuclear power generation to allow Canada to maximize the benefits and perpetuate its traditional leadership in commercial nuclear power

· Choosing a Canadian Generation IV reactor technology, rather than a technology developed outside of Canada, has the greatest potential to boost employment for Canadian companies many times over and maximize GDP benefits for Ontario and Canada
