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.

Climate & Clean Energy

After reading the Trottier Project's Inventory of Low-Carbon Energy for Canada, what I find most striking about the results is how utterly unremarkable they are. The findings on Canada's reserves... Read more »
