The EPS tool was developed by the Pembina Institute in collaboration with Energy Innovation. It’s free and open to everyone - based on peer-reviewed source material and publicly available data. The EPS is part of the Pembina Institute’s ongoing effort to improve Canadians' understanding of how climate and energy policies can be designed to meet Canada’s emissions reduction targets. It can enable Canadians to arrive at well-informed opinions and hold parties, candidates and elected officials accountable for energy and climate policies that can deliver on promises.
