After feeling out companies working on small-scale nuclear technology, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories is forging ahead with a project aimed at testing a next-generation reactor in Chalk River, Ont.
A team of researchers at one of the world’s largest geothermal power plants will use two novel technologies to scrub carbon dioxide directly from the air and inject it deep underground where it will turn permanently to stone
Until now, offshore wind turbines have been restricted to particularly shallow waters. New ballasted technology has changed the rules of the game and is expected to open up a huge number of coastal regions to development
Engineers first pumped water uphill to store energy a century ago. Today, the technology makes up most of the world’s storage capacity. But as wind and solar transform the power market, researchers are searching for the next breakthrough
The International Energy Agency says the world’s reliance on coal has to start diminishing by 2020 if there is any hope of meeting the Paris climate change accord goals
Metamaterial Technologies is developing solar cells 70 per cent thinner than those on the market today; they could be integrated into planes and cars to slash transportation emissions
Some energy experts say “clean coal” technology can now trap up to 90 per cent of carbon emissions from smokestacks. They are looking for tax incentives to bring prices down and get the technology across the finish line
The site uses towers built at CS Wind in Windsor and blades manufactured at Siemens’ soon-to-close plant in Tillsonburg, Ont.
Officials say several people experienced respiratory difficulties but firefighters have so far been unable to identify and find the substance
The province’s energy minister announced legislative changes that will open up the Bay of Fundy’s nearly 50-foot tides to more underwater turbines
