How transportation evolves in the next several years will be crucial in alleviating congestion & unlocking the economic benefits of clean energy. These are the clean energy stories that are influencing Canada’s transportation systems.

A decade ago, there were only a couple thousand electric vehicles on the road worldwide. Last year, they cruised past a million—and kept going. But that’s nothing compared with what’s to come. China, for one, plans to add as many EVs next year as exist in the entire world today. And considering that transportation represents…

The 150-year history of Confederation is but a speck of time compared to the lifespan of planet earth. Birthdays are a good time to look back, but an even better time to look forward. As Canadians, we sometimes downplay what we have accomplished and underestimate what we can do next. But let’s step outside our…

Canada saw 15 per cent less spent on new clean energy development in 2015 than in the previous year, and future growth in this sector will depend largely on policies being developed provincially and federally, according to Clean Energy Canada’s latest annual assessment. A Pivotal Time for Clean Energy finds the slow-down in Canada’s clean energy…

Every time you fill your vehicle’s tank, a portion of the fuel you buy comes from plants, not fossil fuels. That’s because, since 2005, provincial and federal policies in Canada have required gasoline and diesel fuel to include some liquid biofuel. Our latest research shows those policies are working. Biofuels adoption is up—accounting for five…
