The energy decisions we make today will have significant economic and environmental implications for many years to come, below are the stories on how Canada’s energy roadmap is shaping the clean energy landscape.

Ontario celebrated a successful inaugural cap and trade auction earlier this month, with a sellout of 2017 vintage allowances, raising $472 million dollars in revenue for the province’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Account. The big question is how the money will be spent. According to law, the proceeds of cap and trade must be spent on…

“We are witnessing a transformation of global power markets led by renewables.” Those were the words of Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency—an institution often noted for its conservative tendencies when it comes to renewable energy. The global clean energy transition has taken hold. Hundreds of billions of dollars flow into new…

Tipping points: those elusive moments when a technology goes mainstream. Much has been written in the debate over whether that moment for renewable energy has passed, is fast approaching, or is still a ways away. The true tipping point will only become apparent in the rear-view mirror, and it won’t be defined by a single…

VANCOUVER—As Canadian clean energy companies look to sell their solutions abroad, it’s clear who’s buying. New analysis from Clean Energy Canada shows the world’s three largest electricity markets—China, the U.S. and India—were collectively responsible for half of global clean energy investment in 2016, which totalled C$348 billion. China alone has invested over half-a-trillion dollars in…

Vancouver, le 30 mars 2017. – Pour les entreprises canadiennes d’énergie propre qui cherchent à vendre leurs solutions à l’étranger, l’identité des acheteurs est clairement établie.

Last December, most premiers and the prime minister adopted a landmark national climate plan to cut carbon pollution and spur clean growth. For Canada’s clean energy sector, a national climate plan is incredibly welcome. It signals to developers and investors that Canada is an important market for climate solutions, and that the demand for clean…

It’s early morning, 2067. You tap your phone to silence the buzzing alarm, which activates your home’s automated ‘wake up’ setting. A soft glow fills your room as a network of LEDs reaches just the right level of brightness. You roll out of bed, stepping onto floors warmed by a system that draws in heat…

In a new report released this morning, the Fraser Institute paints a simplistic portrait of Ontario’s coal phaseout—the single largest greenhouse gas reduction initiative in North America to date. Evaluating the coal phaseout solely on the basis of particulate matter and air quality misses the bigger picture—that burning coal for energy contributes to climate change…

We look forward to hearing from you.
