Nuclear can additionally complement renewables such as
wind and solar, advocates say. It could accomplish this by
providing baseload power/energy during periods where the
intermittent power from these sources is not sufficient to
match a grid's energy needs, the argument goes.
With SMRs, each of the provinces has a different plan for implementation.
Ontario, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan all
plan to license, construct and activate SMRs for on-grid electrical
supply. The three SMRs planned at Ontario's Darlington
Nuclear Generating Station would bring the power output of
their new nuclear site up to 1,200 megawatts, according to
Ontario Power Generation. They report that's enough to provide
reliable power to about 1.2 million homes.
In keeping with custom, Alberta wants to install SMRs into
the framework of oilsands operation and petrochemical production.
In a statement to ASET about the SMR deployment
and development strategy, the office of Brian Jean, minister
of energy and minerals in Alberta, shared its reasons behind
the decision to move forward with the technology.
" Nuclear energy could power electrolysis to produce hydrogen
to be used in a variety of applications including ammonia
production, refining process and transportation. There
is also potential to use SMRs to decarbonize the critical
minerals and petrochemical value chains, " the statement
reads.
" Most of Alberta's electricity, about 54 per cent, is currently
generated from natural gas and SMRs could provide an
emissions-free alterative. Alberta's government is open to
listening to Albertans' views on nuclear power at this early
stage, " it continues.
