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

The Future of SMRs Is All About the “R”

By Simon Irish

A lot of people are speculating about the potential role of small modular reactors, known in the nuclear industry by the acronym “SMRs.” These new reactor designs promise to deliver a clean and reliable alternative to fossil fuels – but the discussion typically focuses on the “S” and the “M,” as if those features represent the true innovation.

Nuclear power and the land

"In the fight against climate change, what we are on the hunt for are safe energy solutions. And of all the options, nuclear is the safest," writes Leigh Phillips for Canadian Dimension

Advanced Reactors: Turning the Corner

A common misconception about advanced nuclear technologies is that they are largely conceptual and will not be commercialized in time to contribute to meeting near-term climate goals.
