Canada has made a commitment to reducing its carbon emissions. Doing so will mean reducing the amount of greenhouse gases we produce as a result of burning things like fossil fuels.
Across the country, there is the capacity for the creation of new or expanded assets that produce clean, renewable energy. Hydroelectric facilities can be expanded, new solar and wind projects are being planned, and there are other emerging technologies that can play in the energy mix at a lower carbon footprint than fossil fuels.
This conversation will focus on the barriers to further removing fossil fuels from our energy mix, the ability to expand renewable energy assets and the energy they could provide, where the quick wins are available now, and the policy/governance needed to support the move to an electrified economy.
