U-Battery connects with some of Canada’s brightest young minds at Ontario Tech University

21 November 2019

U-Battery recently had an opportunity to connect with some of Canada’s brightest young minds from the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science at the Ontario Tech University in Oshawa.

U-Battery’s Canadian project lead, Kinectrics’ Director of Innovation, Sean Donnelly, provided an overview of the U-Battery’s innovative SMR technology and its role in addressing energy poverty and reliability issues by providing a clean, safe, emissions-free, and cost-effective source of energy in a variety of applications including remote communities and other off grid locations such as mining operations.

As the only institution in Canada that offers an honours degree dedicated to nuclear engineering, U-Battery is grateful to have been invited to speak at the university. “We’ve got a really smart and talented group here. I’m looking forward to seeing how these students contribute to and strengthen the Canadian nuclear sector” said Sean.

U-Battery is excited to build on its working relationship with the Ontario Tech University as an opportunity to pair the next generation of nuclear leaders with the next step in nuclear energy innovation.
