Setting the Stage for a Sustainable Energy Strategy: Canada's Necessary Opportunity
It is without question that the availability of energy is vital to the livelihoods of all Canadians. We rely on energy to feed ourselves, to provide us with shelter, to move ourselves and our goods, to enable us to produce a wide variety of products and services, to entertain ourselves, and to make a living. The energy system is key to Canada's future and opportunity.
Our energy system is also at the heart of one of humankind's most challenging problems — global climate change.
This paper will begin to explore how the Trottier Energy Futures Project is defining the challenge and immense opportunity of designing and implementing a Canadian sustainable energy strategy.
