• Description

Reliable, affordable, 100 per cent emissions-free electricity in Canada by 2035 is entirely possible. Not only that, it would create numerous jobs and help Canada meet its international climate obligations.

"Shifting Power: Zero-Emissions Electricity Across Canada by 2035" is the first Canadian modelling study to explore pathways to zero-emissions electricity by 2035 without relying on expensive and sometimes unproven and dangerous technologies like nuclear or fossil gas with carbon capture and storage. The analysis uses purpose-built electricity modelling to explore reliable, affordable pathways that prioritize wind, solar, energy storage, energy efficiency and interprovincial transmission, while also accounting for a growing economy and aggressive electrification up to 2050.
