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.

The Clean Fuel Standard is critical to Canada’s national climate plan. It has the potential to reduce emissions by 30 Mt CO2eq beyond existing measures and expand the market for low-carbon fuels. There remain design questions, however. To help address them, Clean Energy Canada contracted Navius Research to model several scenarios showing how the Clean…
