Trottier Energy Futures Project
Imagine a future with a cleaner environment, a future in which Canada is seen as a leader in innovative clean-energy solutions.
The David Suzuki Foundation, the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and the Trottier Family Foundation have joined forces to envision this future.
With input and ideas from energy and economic experts, as well as from Canadians from all walks of life, we can create this future.
Canada needs solutions to overcome the serious threat posed by climate change. Using fossil fuels as our primary energy source contributes to climate change and other environmental problems, and the increasing scarcity of these resources is driving up energy costs. Canada can overcome many of these problems by developing energy systems that are secure, affordable and free from harmful emissions and other environmental effects.
The Trottier Energy Futures Project will include scientific reviews of the full range of energy production and distribution opportunities available to Canada, taking into account economic, social and environmental concerns.
An Inventory of Low-Carbon Energy for Canada shows that Canada's supplies of solar, wind, hydroelectric and biomass energy are much larger than the current or forecast demand for fuel and electricity, and technology costs have been falling in recent years. Read more »
