Estevan Saskatchewan is Canada’s Energy City. From its historical roots of coal and oil and gas to hosting the first power station in the world to successfully use Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology.

Our region is the centre for applied research in direct lithium extraction technology (DLE), deep earth geothermal baseload power generation, graphitization of coal plus the potential future home of two Small Modular Reactors (SMR).

Estevan is innovation and resilience. Its in our culture and our way of thinking. Dr Eric Grimson, former Chancellor of MIT, and Jeff Sandquist, former VP of Microsoft, call Estevan their birthplace.

Innovation in energy is currently the largest disruption the world is experiencing. Estevan and Saskatchewan will succeed in the current challenge of energy disruption though the work of The Innovation Centre for Energy Development (ICED)

These webpages outlines SETH’s 3-year proposal within the greater framework of ICED.
