Aerial view of the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station near Kincardine, Ont. The reality is that renewables alone cannot meet this need; we need stable, baseload electricity to power our homes and businesses when the sun isn’t shining, and the wind isn’t blowing. Otherwise, we face potential for grid instability and blackouts. These are important considerations as we plan for the sustainable and clean grid of the future, writes AECL's Fred Dermarkar.

The Canadian Nuclear Laboratories campus in Chalk River, Ont., pictured on May 27, 2019. To avoid an energy supply crunch, Canada will need diversity of options: not just hydro, nuclear, wind, and solar, but also an optimum mix of different designs of each of these to allow us to adapt to unforeseen events, writes AECL's Fred Dermarkar.
