Renewable Energy & Efficiency | Pembina Institute

A global transition to sustainable energy requires renewable energy and energy efficiency — solutions that are also realistic, affordable and profitable. Both also offer many environmental, economic and social benefits.

The Pembina Institute works to:

  • Support the use of renewable sources, maximize energy efficiency opportunities and reduce demand for both electricity and heating sources based on fossil fuels.
  • Support renewable energy and energy efficiency policy solutions in Canada.
