The demand for materials used to create buildings, infrastructure, equipment and products is expected to double in the next 40 years.

Québec energy consultation

In fall 2013, the Commission sur les enjeux énergétiques du Québec launched a public consultation process looking at energy issues. Citizens and organizations throughout Québec are expressing their opinions, sharing their expertise and making suggestions about ways to deal with the main energy issues facing Québec.  What energy-related challenges will Quebecers face in the future? What should be Québec's priorities in the energy field? What targets should be defined?
