The Regional Municipality of Durham
Durham Region produces approximately 30 per cent of Ontario’s electricity, and is a recognized energy cluster. Durham’s two nuclear generating stations in Pickering and in Clarington set that cluster in motion. Out of the 22 Candu reactors in the country, 12 are located in Durham Region, and have a combined generating capacity of approximately 6,600 megawatts.
Representing a full spectrum of the energy cycle, Durham’s skilled labour force, transmission capacity, and infrastructure are supported by research and development opportunities, along with specialized training and educational programs to make this a major energy cluster in North America.
An innovative climate and established energy networks, in addition to opportunities for collaboration with government and educational institutions, make Durham Region an ideal location for the development of energy solutions.
