Nuclear power meets more than 55% of Ontario electricity needs and remains one of the cheapest power sources (on a dollar per megawatt basis) in Ontario’s electricity portfolio. The refurbishment and continued operation of Ontario’s 12 nuclear reactors employs approximately 24,000 individuals and provides economic benefits to the province in the order of $5 billion in labour, fuel and equipment spending.
The Nuclear Energy Panel will explore opportunities available for Ontario companies in the nuclear supply chain, both in Ontario and abroad. Speakers include:
