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
