The challenge

For decades, we’ve relied on traditional energy sources — especially fossil fuels and hydroelectric — to supply large amounts of power. Today, the realities of climate change are transforming the global energy mix…and our world.

Renewable energy has become a game-changing and self-sustaining force. Emerging technologies are speeding the transition to a more harmonious mix of traditional and greener energy sources.

While these changes are creating new opportunities, for industry the evolution is often more complex. Greater regulation, carbon pricing, and stakeholder engagement are becoming the new normal.

We need to optimize energy and power sources to minimize environmental impacts without sacrificing affordability and efficiency. Until recently, new technologies like storage-battery systems, small modular nuclear reactors, solar arrays, and wind turbines were failing the cost-effectiveness test. Many hadn't yet stood the test of time and weren’t sufficiently reliable.

Today, governments are investing to spur development, and R&D institutions and industry leaders are more engaged in knowledge sharing. The cost of cutting-edge energy technologies is inching down, coming closer to attaining grid-parity with some of the bigger, more traditional sources.

We’re optimistic about the future. About reducing carbon emissions from oil and gas. About maximizing green technologies and developing new hydro and nuclear power projects. About microgrid technologies that are powering remote sites and communities.

We’re putting our best minds to work for your business to find the smarter energy solution. If the answer doesn’t exist today, we’ll work with you to create it.

Our response

Managing microgrids: We’ve developed a microgrid controller that manages power supply from multiple sources, enabling the most remote communities to minimize the use of expensive diesel and optimize renewable sources.

Small modular reactors: We see great potential for this technology, which is scalable and has lower capital costs than large reactors, making them ideal for remote sites and off-grid applications. We’re working with regulators and governments to support their safety, licensing, and implementation.

Carbon capture technology and storage: Preventing carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere is key to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. We’re designing and implementing carbon capture systems by leveraging the best CO2 capture technologies.

Fusion technology: We’re partnering with General Fusion, a Canadian clean tech company, to advance the development of their fusion energy technology by designing a full-scale demonstration system to test this new technology.

Water-free in situ oil extraction: Hatch is a lead partner in Nsolv, an in situ oil extraction technology that uses no water and reduces greenhouse gas by three quarters compared to traditional methods.



Unlocking a sustainable energy mix with nuclear

Amar Jolly
Energy inequality, urbanization, and climate change all share one thing in common: access to sustainable and reliable power. Amar Jolly shares his take on how nuclear power can help us to achieve a less carbon-intensive world in an economical way.

Converting inexpensive natural gas into high-value economics

Sanjiv Save
As natural gas becomes increasingly abundant, barriers are leading to depressed prices for the foreseeable future, with very little upside projected. Our solution is simple: enabling technology to produce higher value, higher demand products that benefit consumers and can be readily exported.
