Time to Put Ontario’s Planning for Low-Carbon Energy Security into High Gear
The impacts of a “once in a generation” North America-wide storm and continuing geopolitical conflicts provide stark reminders of the growing importance of low-carbon energy security. Without it, governments around the world recognize the impossibility of achieving net zero, critical for the fight against climate change, while ensuring economic competitiveness in the global marketplace. As a result, developed countries around the world are acting aggressively to plan for this future. Ontario urgently needs an energy action plan that maintains its competitiveness and, more importantly, addresses the low-carbon electricity shortfall facing the province from now to 2050, and beyond.
