1 Presentation to the 2003 alPHa Annual Conference Fusion and the ITER Project The Opportunity for Canada June 10, 2003 Dr. Murray J. Stewart President and CEO, Iter Canada

2 Page 2 Fusion Holds Promise as a New Global Energy Source  Fusion is the energy source that powers the sun and the stars and provides the earth with heat and light. Fusion is: Safe: The process terminates if exacting conditions are not met Clean: Produces no greenhouse gases or nuclear fuel wastes Sustainable: The fuel is hydrogen–based from highly abundant, naturally occurring materials available worldwide. (Deuterium – extracted from natural water, and tritium - derived from lithium) Secure: Gives developed and developing countries security of supply  ITER is a fusion energy research and development centre whose goal is to prove the technological feasibility of fusion energy, while demonstrating its safety and environmental attractiveness.

12 Page 12 ITER is a Growing International Collaboration ITER Participants in the Negotiations: Canada European Union Japan Russian Federation China USA The stage is set for all G8 countries, plus the other EU countries and China to embark on ITER South Korea Potential Additional Participant: “The Bush administration believes that fusion is a key element in U.S. long-term energy plans because fusion offers the potential for plentiful, safe and environmentally benign energy. A fusion power plant would produce no greenhouse gas emissions, use abundant and widely distributed sources of fuel, shut down easily, require no fissionable materials, operate in a continuous mode to meet demand, and produce manageable radioactive waste.” U.S. Department of Energy Press Release, January 30, 2003

15 Page 15 Highlights of Canada’s Offer  Site meets or exceeds all ITER technical specifications  Ideal tritium supply at adjacent facility – no need to ship  Neutral site for collaborative research  Favourable socio-cultural environment  Outstanding public and community support  Governments, labour, private sector, academia – all support Canada’s participation  Established regulatory and licensing regime  Benefits from Canada’s R & D, infrastructure capabilities  Joint Site Assessment confirmed these strengths

16 Page 16 Canadian site offers a world of choices

17 Iter Community Council Outstanding Public & Community Support Favourable Opinion Polls  National Opinion Poll 90% favourable or neutral towards the Iter Project, (67% support, 22% neutral)  Local Community Poll showed consistent results, increased knowledge = higher level of support  34-page community paper Delivered to over 200,000 households  Reflects regional support

18 Page 18 Benefits to Canada of hosting ITER Plus…. International prestige, leadership, partnership SUPPORTS POLICY INITIATIVES  Global science & technology  Collaborative research  Safe, clean, secure energy ECONOMY  Billions in foreign investment:  Employment to build & operate: 000’s of person years,  250 international scientists TECHNOLOGY  Access to advanced technologies  Expands energy technology industry  Boost to education
