Canada has developed a unique nuclear reactor called CANDU, 
for CANada Deuterium Uranium.
It uses pressurized fuel channels instead of a pressure vessel; 
natural instead of enriched uranium; and, heavy water as a 
coolant/moderator instead of light water found in pressurized 
water reactor designs.
In addition to Canada, CANDU reactors are found in India, 
Pakistan, Argentina, South Korea, Romania and China.

What is renewable energy?
y

Renewable energy is obtained from natural resources that can 
be naturally replenished or renewed within a human lifespan - 
that is, the resource is a sustainable source of energy.
Some natural resources, such as moving water, wind and 
sunshine, are not at risk of depletion.
Biomass is a renewable resource only if its rate of consumption 
does not exceed its rate of production.
A wide range of energy-producing technologies and equipment 
has been developed over time to take advantage of these 
natural resources.
Usable energy can be produced in the form of electricity, 
industrial heat, thermal energy for space and water 
conditioning, and transportation fuels.
