The Cost of Decarbonizing the Canadian Electricity System

The Cost of Decarbonizing the Canadian Electricity System Canada's electricity sector is predominantly low-carbon, but includes coal, natural gas and diesel fueled power plants. Using a linear optimization model to identify least-cost pathways to decarbonize Canada's electricity sector. We co-optimize investments in new generation, storage and transmission capacity and the hourly dispatch available assets over the course of a year. Assets include wind speed data from 2281 locations in Canada, hourly solar irradiation data from 199 meteorological stations, hourly demand for each province and inter- and intra-provincial transmission line data.

System Under Stress: Energy Decision-Making in Canada and the Need for Informed Reform

System Under Stress: Energy Decision-Making in Canada and the Need for Informed Reform Canada’s energy decision systems are under stress — stress that appears to be growing and reaching the point of dysfunction. This paper aims to increase the light and reduce the heat on energy decision-making by better framing the problem; improving understanding of the system and its component parts; identifying the core stress points in the system; and outlining a broad approach to “informed reform.”

Re-Energizing Canada: Pathways to a Low-Carbon Future:

Re-Energizing Canada: Pathways to a Low-Carbon Future: Natural Resources Canada invited an independent group of academics from across the country to examine how Canada could transition its energy systems to low carbon while remaining globally competitive. Take a look at the short and long version of their report.

Power to Excel

Power to Excel by Dr. Roger Gibbins reflects the conviction that an extraordinary future is within our reach if we harness our energy potential today. With the world in the midst of an historic shift to a lower-carbon economy, it is an opportune time to reflect on Canada’s energy system – where are we now, where do we want to be a generation from now, and how do we get there from here?

Canada and the Low Carbon Energy Revolution by Michael Cleland

Canada and the Low Carbon Energy Revolution by Michael Cleland Canada’s commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80 per cent from 2005 levels by 2050 is a massive, and arguably, a necessary energy transformation. Mr. Cleland examines what this new world of energy decision-making needs.

Understanding the Shift in Energy Security by Petra Dolata

Understanding the Shift in Energy Security by Petra Dolata Global shifts in government policies and in public opinion with regards to energy transitions and energy security will affect the demand for fossil fuels produced in Canada and elsewhere. In order to understand and respond to these changes, it will be crucial to differentiate between short-term and long-term trajectories.

Big Projects, Big Politics, Big Policy: Strengthening Public Confidence in Energy Decision-Making in Canada by Monica Gattinger

Big Projects, Big Politics, Big Policy: Strengthening Public Confidence in Energy Decision-Making in Canada by Monica Gattinger While energy development could transform many communities’ energy security, energy affordability and economic, social and cultural development, it has been highly contentious. Failure to resolve Canada’s energy development challenges is costing — and will cost — the country in environmental performance, and in our capacity to attract investment and foster economic growth and innovation.

How does Canada Respond to Stranded Asset Risk? by Amy Myers Jaffe

How does Canada Respond to Stranded Asset Risk? by Amy Myers Jaffe Canada is one of the world’s most important oil producers but it is facing a high degree of stranded asset risk. In particular, the Canadian oilsands represent a specific target of market share competition with global oil powerhouse Saudi Arabia and thus face cost pressures from current oil price levels. Lowering the cost of production will be vital to the local Canadian firms who have purchased the reserves and increased their exposure to stranded asset risk.

The Inescapability of Carbon Taxes for Canada by Dennis McConaghy

The Inescapability of Carbon Taxes for Canada by Dennis McConaghy Canadian political leadership’s great challenge is whether it can bring such appropriate rationality to carbon policy via carbon pricing, appropriately conditioned. Mr. McConaghy provides thoughts and fundamental conditions of a Canadian carbon-pricing policy.

Energy Perspectives 2017: Long-term macro and market outlook.

Energy Perspectives 2017: Long-term macro and market outlook. Population and income growth continue to boost energy demand, globally, if not everywhere. The much-discussed energy transition is shaking up parts of the global energy system. In other parts, however, changes are slow, indicating that it will take considerable time to align the energy intensity of the global economy and the global fuel mix with common sustainability criteria. This report contains illustrations of possible developments, scenarios that rest on different assumptions for the key drivers above.
