At Terrestrial Energy, the team’s goal is to commercialize an advanced nuclear technology with four leading characteristics: cheap, clean, versatile, and high temperature. According to the company’s CFO, Canon Bryan, these are the ingredients necessary for a nuclear power system to reach beyond electricity and provide power for industry, heating, and transport.
He explains that while nuclear energy has been a stable source of power for decades now, high upfront construction costs were too great for even national economies to accept.
Terrestrial Energy is addressing this drawback by delivering smaller and cheaper plants that maintain scalability and afford greater versatility.
Bryan discusses a range of topics, including public perception of nuclear energy, the safety, and risks of nuclear energy versus other types of energy, how economic innovation occurs, and the promise of nuclear innovation for the future of the world.
