HOW CAN WE MEET OUR
GROWING ENERGY NEEDS…
AND HAVE CLEAN AIR
IN OUR CITIES?
IMSR® IS GAME-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY
Leading the way to a bright energy future.
IMSR®: Transformative Clean Energy Technology
To meet the increasing energy demands of global prosperity, while protecting the environment and the air in our cities that we breathe, we need a game changer.
Terrestrial Energy is developing revolutionary — not simply evolutionary — fission technology for electric power and hydrogen and much more. To achieve this, we use completely different nuclear technology – a molten salt as coolant and fuel in our Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant. With this technologically superior yet proven approach, IMSR® nuclear power plants are on a clear path to market and are more affordable, more cost competitive, and more versatile than conventional nuclear power plants that have been in use commercially for over 60 years.
IMSR® technology can be brought to market quickly, building them in four years to produce electricity or industrial heat at prices competitive with fossil fuels, while emitting no greenhouse gases. The first IMSR® power plants are expected to come online in the late 2020s.
IMSR® technology is today’s reliable and resilient clean energy game changer.

This Generation IV nuclear technology is a clean energy game changer.
IMSR® molten salt reactor technology provides a clean, cost-competitive alternative to burning fossil fuels.
IMSR® power plants can load-follow and pair well with wind and solar. Their high-grade heat is ideal for producing hydrogen, desalination, and many industrial uses.
IMSR® power plants have among the lowest environmental impacts of clean energy technologies. With Generation IV nuclear, we can meet rising energy demands while fighting climate change.
Terrestrial Energy is a clear leader among advanced nuclear plant developers. The IMSR® design aims for near-term deployment, with choices such as using standard uranium fuel.
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.

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.
