The B.C. Clean Energy Jobs map highlights over 14,100 jobs from clean energy in B.C., and allows users to explore 156 renewable energy projects currently in operation or under construction.
Questions and answers on building an effective climate strategy for Alberta.
There’s a common misconception that increasing the supply of renewable energy to the electricity grid drives up power costs in Alberta.
In fact, clean energy is lowering Albertans’ electricity costs. As this fact sheet explains, both solar and wind energy are subsidizing our electricity rates in different ways. Understanding why that happens requires a closer look at how the electricity market works.
Within 20 years, Alberta has the potential to drastically reduce its over-reliance on fossil fuels for power generation and replace it with renewable energy sources such as wind, sun, biomass, hydro and geothermal energy, according to this report from the Pembina Institute and Clean Energy Canada.
The results and summary of April 2014 opinion research on British Columbians' opinions of climate change and clean energy.
This report shows that putting conservation first, and supplementing it with a diversified portfolio of green energy sources, can be more cost-effective for Ontario than renewed investment in nuclear stations.
Documents formal complaints regarding wind energy made to the most likely authorities in Alberta to receive such complaints.
On May 21, 2013, Pembina Institute hosted the Clean Electricity Thought Leader Forum to discuss a greenhouse gas emissions-intensity performance standard for the electricity sector in Alberta.
What will it take for Canada to become a clean energy super power? The clean technology sector has emerged as a major driver of innovation and employment growth in Canada. But, if you ask the experts, federal policy and access to capital are still major barriers to a thriving clean energy industry in Canada.
Opportunity in the Wind Alberta has one of the largest and strongest wind energy resources in Canada.
Wind power offers a significant opportunity to help clean the province’s electricity grid and, as harnessing wind power picks up across the province, we’re beginning to see the benefits along with a host of questions and concerns.
In response to the government's two-year feed-in tariff (FIT) review process, the Green Energy Act Alliance and Shine Ontario Association have joined forces to present a clear path for renewable energy in Ontario.
The Pembina Institute's detailed platform analysis compares the commitments the Ontario Liberal, NDP and Progressive Conservative parties have made on a range of sustainable energy priorities.
The analysis looks at where the parties stand on issues such as investing in renewable power generation, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating incentives for energy conservation and expanding transit systems.
Ontario has taken the laudable step of closing down its entire fleet of coal-fired power plants — a move supported across partisan lines. This, however, is but one of the many changes that is coming to Ontario's electricity system.
Tim Weis, director of renewable energy & energy efficiency, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the role that renewable energy could play in the future of electricity generation in Ontario.
This in-depth study, prepared by the Pembina Institute and the David Suzuki Foundation, explores the significance, benefits and impacts of the recent surge in natural gas production in North America, particularly in light of the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change.
Behind the switch: pricing Ontario electricity options examines how scaling back Ontario's plans to develop renewable energy would affect electricity prices, using an integrated energy system simulator to compare two main scenarios.
This report explores significant opportunities for Ontario farmers to benefit from investments in renewable energy on their farms.
Written in collaboration with the Pembina Institute, the Heinrich Boell Foundation, the United Church of Canada and Climate Action Network Canada, the report makes a trans-Atlantic comparison between Germany and Ontario, examining ways in which Ontario farmers could benefit from Ontario clean energy policies and incentives.
This document outlines the core elements of a strong climate change and energy electoral platform. Throughout the federal campaign, the Pembina Institute will be assessing parties' climate change and energy commitments using the criteria outlined in this document, which are drawn from our research and analysis on these topics.
Community-owned renewable energy facilities create local jobs and revenue with less environmental impacts than conventional energy options.
This guide helps landowners, companies and government understand and explain wind energy in Alberta.
The objective of this thought leader forum was to create a space for dialogue among key Albertans in order to help the province expand the development and deployment of cogeneration systems (small and large) and wind energy.
The 2009 International Wind-Diesel Workshop brought together a focused group of interested parties — government, private industry and non-governmental organizations — with experience and interest in wind-diesel.
