Canada is planning to build the largest nuclear power plant in the world

 Canadian utility Bruce Power is planning to expand its nuclear plant in Ontario, potentially building the world's largest facility. The Ontario government announced that Bruce Power will conduct an environmental assessment to add up to 4.8 gigawatts of capacity to its plant. The expansion would make the site larger than Japan's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant, which currently has seven reactors and over eight gigawatts of capacity. The announcement comes amid growing recognition that carbon-free nuclear power is crucial in combating climate change. Canada is developing plans to mandate a net-zero power grid by 2035, and Bruce Power is the first conventional nuclear plant in the province in three decades.
