Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Nuclear Hydrogen in Ontario

 

May 1, 2024

Ontario Tech University
Oshawa, ON, Canada

Ontario Tech University, the IAEA Collaborating Centre on integrated energy systems with advanced nuclear power reactors, is hosting this event to highlight Ontario’s potential leading near-term large-scale nuclear hydrogen production in light of the recently announced plans by the province to invest in new nuclear energy initiatives for large nuclear as well as SMRs, and the growing interest in large-scale clean hydrogen production.

  • Invitation to Participate in the Workshop

    Currently operating nuclear power plants play a stabilizing role in a synergetic operation with the variable renewables sources as a solution to face the worldwide increasing energy demand. This role is seen to expand to provide a sustainable pathway for clean and large-scale hydrogen production. Ontario has the potential to lead in large-scale nuclear hydrogen production with nuclear energy leads covering power needs in Ontario, accounting for ~60%, of followed by the two other low-carbon sources; hydro at around 24%, and wind at 7%. In addition, the consideration of advanced nuclear reactor designs and small modular reactors (SMRs) for baseload or load-following operations in Ontario bring added value as part of integrated nuclear-renewable energy systems in hydrogen production along with serving off-grid communities and remote areas.

    The main objectives of this event are to create an effective platform of knowledge and information transfer by bringing together speakers from national and provincial stakeholders to shed light on the topic towards building hydrogen economy and the role of nuclear in Ontario as an enabler to facing the climate crisis; and to provide an interactive platform for the participants to communicate with the speakers and panelists.

    We look forward to seeing you at the workshop in Oshawa.
