By 2030, in Canada, we’ll cut carbon pollution in half. By 2050, in Canada, we’ll eliminate carbon pollution and use 100 per cent renewable energy.
Clean, renewable electricity
Through electricity system modelling, we know that Canada has huge potential to transition to clean electricity by prioritizing wind, solar, energy storage and interprovincial transmission, while also accounting for much more electrification being added in sectors like transportation. The pathways modelled avoid the need for new large hydroelectricity, new nuclear generation or carbon capture and storage technologies in the electricity sector — a double win for climate and the environment.Learn More
