Shifting Power: Zero-Emissions Electricity Across Canada by 2035
Reliable, affordable, 100 per cent emissions-free electricity in Canada by 2035 is entirely possible. Not only that, it would create numerous jobs and help Canada meet its international climate obligations.
“Shifting Power: Zero-Emissions Electricity Across Canada by 2035” is the first Canadian modelling study to explore pathways to zero-emissions electricity by 2035 without relying on expensive and sometimes unproven and dangerous technologies like nuclear or fossil gas with carbon capture and storage. The analysis uses purpose-built electricity modelling to explore reliable, affordable pathways that prioritize wind, solar, energy storage, energy efficiency and interprovincial transmission, while also accounting for a growing economy and aggressive electrification up to 2050.
Decarbonizing Electricity and Decolonizing Power: Voices, Insights and Priorities from Indigenous Clean Energy Leaders
Indigenous communities across Canada are on the leading edge of renewable energy development. 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. Six principles must be upheld.
Talking Transition: Shaping Canada’s Clean Power Pathways
The report captures opinions from 150 energy experts, and references recent summaries of attitudes from Canadians, on reaching zero carbon emissions by 2050. The results offer valuable insight into the perspectives of those stakeholders who are likely to play important roles in realizing a clean power future in Canada.
