Leading the transition to a clean energy future requires advancing solutions to today’s energy challenges from various angles. The Pembina Institute has spent close to three decades working to reduce the environmental impacts of Canada’s energy production and use in several key areas:

  • driving down energy demand by encouraging energy efficiency in buildings, and transportation powered with cleaner energy sources;
  • promoting pragmatic policy approaches for governments to avoid dangerous climate change, such as reducing the carbon intensity of our electricity grids;
  • promoting policies to support a clean energy economy in western Canada;
  • and — recognizing that the transition to clean energy will include fossil fuels for some time — advocating for responsible development of Canada’s oilsands and natural gas resources.
