Canada And The United States CrissCross Support For Nuclear Energy’s Bright Future

The United States and Canada have a lot to collaborate on in the nuclear energy field, and they seem to be doing a good job of it.

Can Data Centers Take Control of Clean Energy?

By Simon Irish

We are living in times of rapid change across the economy, while two areas stand out as changing especially quickly: tech and energy.

Rethinking Deployment Scenarios for Advanced Reactors: Scalable Nuclear Energy for Zero-Carbon Synthetic Fuels and Products

EPRI is exploring how the full potential of nuclear energy can be brought to bear on the intertwined challenges of meeting future global energy demands, maintaining or improving quality of life, and mitigating environmental degradation.

UNECE Life Cycle Assessment of Electricity Generation Options

The United Nations Economic Council for Europe (UNECE) analyzed the lifecycle emissions of various generating sources and found that nuclear energy had the lowest. Life cycle assessment allows the evaluation of a product over its life cycle, and across a wide range of environmental indicators – this method was chosen to report on the environmental profiles of various technologies.

OCNI Recognizes L3Harris with Innovation Award for Development of Terrestrial Energy IMSR Simulator

Oakville, Ontario – December 7, 2021 – The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) has awarded L3Harris Technologies its 2021 Innovation Award for its work developing a simulator for Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.

Terrestrial Energy Signs Agreement for the Supply of Steam Turbines for IMSR Nuclear Power Plant

Oakville, Ontario, Canada – November 30, 2021 – Terrestrial Energy and Siemens Energy Canada have signed a contract for the manufacturing and supply of steam turbines and other balance-of-plant equipment, such as transformers, switchgear, and motor drive systems, for the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.

The IMSR® generates steam for power generation at standard utility class temperature and pressure, and from systems that are isolated from its nuclear reactor.

Terrestrial Energy Awarded US Government Grant for IMSR Development

CHARLOTTE, NC – November 24, 2021 – Terrestrial Energy USA was awarded a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support licensing and commercialisation of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
