Bruce Power will share its expertise on critical energy policy issues as the newest member of the Ivey Energy Consortium, a partnership between Ivey Business School and stakeholder groups.

The Bruce County-based energy giant’s commitment will support the Ivey Energy Consortium in expanding faculty, research, and outreach initiatives to address energy issues.

Established in 2013 by the Ivey Energy Policy and Management Centre, the Energy Consortium examines the challenges and opportunities facing Canada’s energy sector, policy-makers, and community stakeholders. Bruce Power is the seventh partner in the group, which also includes ATCO, OMERS, Power Workers’ Union, Suncor Energy Foundation, TransCanada Corporation, and Union Gas Limited.

Among other contributions, the Energy Consortium helps Ivey’s Energy Centre to:

  • Establish connections between academia and energy sector stakeholders;
  • Contribute to the national public debate on energy sector policy development; and,
  • Develop new energy-focused case studies and teaching materials.

A new voice and perspective

“Bruce Power will bring a unique perspective and advisory voice as we continue to tackle complex energy policy issues through evidence-based analysis, developed through open and transparent public discussion,” said Ivey Energy Centre Director Guy Holburn, who also holds the Suncor Chair in Energy Policy.

James Scongack, Executive Vice-President of Corporate Affairs and Operational Services at Bruce Power, said the company is looking forward to being part of the conversation on energy sector policy and to gain perspectives from the diverse group of experts assembled in the Ivey Energy Consortium.

“Bruce Power is pleased to be a part of the Ivey Energy Consortium and to share our perspective on the role nuclear plays in delivering low-cost power to Ontario while at the same time delivering significant economic development and tangible worldwide health benefits through the production of medical isotopes,” he said.
