We conduct and commission original research and economic modeling to better understand how quickly technology is shifting the energy landscape and how policy decisions made—or not made—today will impact our competitiveness and quality of life tomorrow.

Like all of our materials, our reports are about as far from “dry” as you can get. We pride ourselves on making our materials accessible, colorful, and entertaining.

The First Ministers’ Meeting on climate change and clean growth, happening this week in Ottawa, is the next step in the process as provincial and territorial premiers work with Ottawa to develop a national climate strategy.

Expert assessments are clear: to tackle climate change, we need clean electricity. This comes as excellent news for Canada: our country already has one of the cleanest electricity sectors in the world.
