We conduct and commission original research and economic modeling to better understand how quickly technology is shifting the energy landscape and how policy decisions made—or not made—today will impact our competitiveness and quality of life tomorrow.

Like all of our materials, our reports are about as far from “dry” as you can get. We pride ourselves on making our materials accessible, colorful, and entertaining.

We commend Ontario for developing its Modern Renewable Fuel Standard, an important part of a package of policies designed to meet the province’s greenhouse gas reduction targets while growing the economy. A low carbon transportation sector will need increased deployment of both commercial and new low-carbon fuel and vehicle technologies, creating significant opportunities for new…
