What does Canada’s energy future look like over the longer term? It’s a critical and timely question—made even more relevant as our country, at least many of our political and business leaders, gets embroiled once again in a polarized debate about pipelines. And it’s the central topic of discussion this week at Generation Energy, an…

If the global clean energy transition were a music festival, China would be dominating the main stage. In the past five years alone, China has invested over half-a-trillion dollars in renewables. That clean energy building spree has propelled the country to superstar status—a remarkable feat considering that, until recently, China was easy to dismiss as…

For many Canadians, a clean energy job probably conjures up images of working in an engineering lab, manufacturing solar panels, or assembling a wind turbine. Sectors like mining are rarely top-of-mind in conversations about building a clean, low-carbon economy. But Canadian resource communities, companies and workers could soon find themselves at the forefront of the…

Last month, Ottawa officially kicked off work on a national strategy for zero-emission cars. And this week, a thoughtful report from Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission said that offering incentives to Canadians who buy those cars doesn’t make much sense. Our take?

What, if any, impact would this have on the global transition to clean energy? The answer, both in the…

After kicking the can down the road multiple times before making a decision, today U.S. President Donald Trump followed through on his campaign promise to remove the United States from the Paris climate agreement. Trump’s indifference—or outright skepticism—about climate change is unequivocally negative for the environment. But that would remain true whether or not the…

We look forward to hearing from you.
