Nuclear: The Innovation Imperative

11:45am-1:30pm | One King West Hotel - 1 King West. , Toronto

It has never been more important to our future prosperity to acquire substantial new sources of energy; this will require a new generation of innovation. Energy demand is increasing at unprecedented rates, particularly in the developing economies. Each one of today’s available energy sources has a downside -- cost, risk, environmental harm -- and, without a breakthrough, the world's economic future is threatened. There is an answer. Hugh MacDiarmid, Chairman of the Board of Terrestrial Energy and former President & CEO of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, says Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) technology is the most exciting innovation in nuclear energy today and may create game-changing energy opportunities for the world -- and for Canada’s nuclear industry.
