Project Approach

The project will include scientific reviews of energy production and distribution opportunities available to Canada, taking into account economic, social, and environmental concerns.

It will identify energy systems that Canada should implement over the next few decades to achieve 80 per cent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and minimize other environmental impacts while maximizing economic and social benefits. It will include an analysis of the potential to create new business and employment opportunities in Canada to meet the growing demand for “greener” energy production.

The Trottier Energy Futures Project will start with a comprehensive evaluation of Canada’s current energy systems (including electricity, transportation, process, and heating systems).  It will then identify integrated solutions to ensure the sustainability of Canada’s energy systems. This work will include a full assessment of associated
technical, environmental, economic, and social implications. It will also identify any necessary changes in public policy and regulations.
