Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems

Overview:

The energy markets in Canada and internationally are moving towards hybrid systems that maximize the benefits of nuclear power and increase the deployment of renewable energy systems. This specialized two-day (2) course focuses on Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems (N-R HES) and the knowledge gained will enable attendees to be ready for a wide range of infrastructure projects that include a variety of energy sources.

You will receive an Ontario Tech University certificate upon successful completion of this course.

 

Who should attend?

You may use the knowledge and skills developed through this course to prepare you for understanding and working with N-R HES, such as:

  • Graduate students, alumni and researchers studying or working in energy, energy systems and nuclear science fields;
  • Energy and transportation electrification planners;
  • Energy, utility and small modular reactor (SMR) provider employees;
  • Policy makers and government officials involved with energy systems regulation;
  • Energy end users.

What you'll learn

  • The needs, requirements, design, and operational aspects of integrated nuclear and renewable hybrid energy systems; 
  • The foundations to analyze, design and evaluate integrated nuclear-renewable hybrid energy systems with different implementation strategies that are optimized based on energy demand and user requirements;
  • Challenges and approaches to achieve practical and profitable Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy System (N-R HES) deployments, using key parameters such as design, control, and operational factors, including scalability, capital cost, project lifetime, construction period, land acquisition, ecological safety, and technological aspects;
  • Business activity modeling with IDEF0 to reflect practical implementation steps with unified activities and practices;
  • Techno-economic analysis methods will be explained and used to evaluate different operational scenarios and strategies.
