The Clean Energy Ministerial held in Beijing, China, earlier this month drew some of the world’s A-list climate and clean energy experts. Among them was Christiana Figueres, the former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (the body responsible for tracking and coordinating countries’ efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under…

VANCOUVER—Canadian mines could help power the transition to clean energy, sparking new economic development in the process, a new report from Clean Energy Canada finds. Growth in clean energy is driving significant demand for the metals and mineral products used to manufacture technologies like solar panels, wind turbines, LED lighting and electric cars, creating an…

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.

City of Vancouver and Clean Energy Canada unveil ‘Solar Now’ demonstration project VANCOUVER—This morning the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Park Board and Clean Energy Canada marked the summer solstice by launching Solar Now, a renewable energy demonstration project.

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?

But it’s a different story here in China, where we’re attending the Clean Energy Ministerial this week. By the end of last year,…

As you might expect, on Day 1 of the Clean Energy Ministerial gathering in Beijing, the hallways were filled with discussions about U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. What, if any, impact would this have on the global transition to clean energy? The answer, both in the…

We look forward to hearing from you.
