Community Investing in our region Investing in our region


The Atlantica Centre for Energy is dedicated to increasing energy literacy for community leaders and stakeholders. The Centre has expanded to include leading energy professionals, national and international organizations in Maine, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, Ontario, Alberta and PEI.

The Centre serves as a bridge between organizations operating in the energy sector and the community to help realize opportunities associated with energy resources in Atlantic Canada and the American Northeast. It provides a meeting ground for government, the education and research sectors, and the community at large to foster partnerships and engage in energy-related issues. more

What are small modular reactors?
Small modular reactors (SMRs) generate in the order of 300 megawatts (MW) of electricity and yet are small – about the size of a gymnasium. Due to their modular configuration, they can operate as stand-alone units or be combined to generate even more power. They can be used in remote communities, provide energy for mining, or contribute to grids powering large cities, among other possibilities. 

SMRs provide clean, steady energy. The advent of smaller reactors opens up the potential for a cost-effective supply of energy, and its portability and modular design allow for use around the world.

New Brunswick is positioning itself to stand at the forefront in the development of a new, reliable, clean energy source: small modular reactors.

The goal of small modular reactor, or SMR, clean energy technology is to generate non-emitting, low-cost energy to communities, fuel energy intensive industries and replace high-emitting electricity generation. The technology is also well positioned to provide a baseload of energy complementing intermittent renewables like solar and wind.
