We need to leverage Canada's clean and renewable resources and expertise to deploy significant power generation capacity over the coming decades. After many years of next to no growth in demand, the electricity sector now needs to accommodate at least a doubling of current electricity consumption by 2050.

In corporate boardrooms and the corridors of political power in Canada and worldwide, business and political leaders are stepping up to act on climate change. While multiple technologies and approaches will be necessary, clean electrification—substituting fossil fuels with renewables and other forms of clean electricity—has consistently been the most affordable, reliable, and efficient path forward to net-zero by 2050.
