We’ve reached peak Site C. You can’t turn on the TV, open a newspaper or scroll through Twitter without hearing about B.C.’s multi-billion-dollar Site C mega-dam.

Not long ago, electric cars were curiosities — auto show novelties, toys for the rich, outliers in oil-demand forecasts.

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? A national game plan to get more electric vehicles (EVs) on Canada’s roads is essential,…
