Re-energizing Canada: Pathways to a Low-Carbon Future

In Fall 2016, Natural Resources Canada commissioned Sustainable Canada Dialogues to produce an independent, scholarly report on the transition to low-carbon energy.

The report was developed to examine how Canada could transition to low-carbon energy systems while remaining globally competitive.  Re-Energizing Canada: Pathways to a Low-Carbon Future, provides independent academic input to Generation Energy, a national dialogue on Canada’s path to a low-carbon future launched by Natural Resources Canada on April 21, 2017. The work of the academic experts in the context of Generation Energy highlights the importance that science and research must play in informing the public policy debate on Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy. It is an important contribution to the range of views and opinions on how Canada can create the affordable energy and innovative jobs Canadians want.

According to the scholars, Canada should accelerate its shift to a low-carbon economy by reducing overall energy demand through energy efficiency and conservation, increasing electrification and switching to low-carbon-emitting sources of electricity and progressively replacing high-carbon petroleum-based fuels with low-carbon ones.
