NEXT GENERATION NUCLEAR

SMRs, Hydrogen and the Future of Energy

GETTING TO NET-ZERO

In the global race to reduce the worst impacts of climate change, more and more countries and businesses are aiming to not just reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but to target “net-zero” emissions by 2050. That means reducing the amount of fossil fuels we burn to as close to zero as possible - then finding ways to remove any remaining gases from the atmosphere.

 

This ambitious goal requires mustering a common purpose in science and technology, entrepreneurship, capital investment and smart public policy like never before. 

 

To engage on this transformative journey, the Nuclear Innovation Institute will focus its work on the future of energy in the Bruce Power Centre for Next Generation Nuclear.

 

The Centre builds upon the clean power and economic opportunity offered by the life-extension program at Bruce Power—and will concentrate on the following three program areas:

SMRs and hydrogen show great promise to drive an energy transformation that stops the worst effects of climate change...
