Canada is positioning itself up to be a leader in a new age of nuclear power by exploring the use of small modular reactors (SMR).
Terrestrial Energy CEO Simon Irish believes his company’s first SMR power plant will give Canadians — and potential customers — confidence in the technology.
Last week’s Clean Energy Ministerial provided Canadian clean-tech companies a chance to show their stuff.
Based in Oakville, Ontario, Terrestrial Energy was named one of the top 10 breakthrough technologies in MIT Technology Review, curated by Bill Gates.
As ministers from more than 25 countries gather in Vancouver this month for the Clean Energy Ministerial, they will be thinking about how the world can transition to clean energy economies.
But decarbonizing the world electricity supply is just the beginning. At best, it would eliminate only 30% of global emissions.
Terrestrial Energy CEO Simon Irish explains to BNN Bloomberg the benefits of a new type of clean energy technology, the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®).
“You can do so much better technically and commercially if you embrace nuclear innovation and embrace a different reactor technology,” he said.
