All existing and future energy projects in Canada are located on either unceded Indigenous territories or treaty lands. A clean electricity transition must ensure benefits flow to communities and will only succeed with full Indigenous consent and participation that upholds Indigenous rights and title. This report, authored by Neegan Burnside and Dean Jacobs, sets out six principles for upholding Indigenous rights and ensuring community benefits in the transition to clean renewable electricity.
Keeping the Lights On: Ensuring energy affordability, equity and access in the transition to clean electricity in Canada
This report focuses on energy poverty in Canada. Almost one in 10 Canadian households spends more than 10 per cent of their income on energy bills. The authors lay out solutions — ranging from a national energy poverty strategy to free heat pumps — to ease the burden.
Shifting Power: Zero-Emissions Electricity Across Canada by 2035
Reliable, affordable, clean electricity in Canada by 2035 is entirely possible. This is the first Canadian modelling study to explore how to get there largely through wind and solar and without relying on expensive and sometimes unproven and environmentally dangerous technologies.
Zeroing in on Emissions: Canada’s Clean Power Pathways – A Review
How can we transition Canada’s energy system at a scope, scale and speed commensurate with the scientific consensus on climate breakdown? This report highlights ten technically feasible strategies, actions and considerations.
