Modernizing energy sector planning and oversight for a net-zero world

The world is facing a fundamental shift in how we power our economy. For decades, fossil fuels have been the dominant way we heat our homes, power our businesses, and fuel our cars. But this is rapidly changing, with electricity now poised to be the backbone of future energy systems.

This paper focuses on the three most important tools provincial governments should employ to prepare for the energy transition: pathway assessments, comprehensive energy strategies, and governance and regulatory reform. It offers some initial recommendations on best practices, components, and considerations for each of these important building blocks of the energy transition.
