Electrifying Ontario's industries
Ontario is an industrial powerhouse. From mining and metallurgy to automotive and aerospace, as the engine of Canada’s economy, Ontario’s heavy industries are hungry for energy. And Ontario Power Generation (OPG) has a plan to supply them with the reliable, low-cost, and clean power they need to continue to create jobs and drive Ontario’s economy forward.
Reducing industry’s carbon footprint
In Ontario, heavy industry accounts for roughly one-quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions. But through innovative partnerships and the pioneering of new technologies, OPG, and our subsidiaries, are exploring ways to make heavy industry energy independent and carbon-free. This will help attract more investments to the province which in turn will create jobs and growth for communities across Ontario.
Working with X-energy on the Xe-100, we can help heavy industry reach climate change goals by using clean, safe electricity and high temperature steam efficiently produced through evolutionary nuclear technology to power their production facilities and enable decarbonization of their industrial processes.Ken HartwickOPG President and CEO
