The Energy Transition We Need: Max Bell School of Public Policy Spring Conference
How do we tackle the biggest policy challenges in getting Canada to net zero?
Like many countries, Canada is now committed to achieving net zero greenhouse-gas emissions by 2050. It is one thing to make such a commitment, and quite another to figure out how to achieve it. How will we finance the massive investment in new technologies that will be necessary in the years ahead? How will we deal with the inevitable economic dislocation created for millions of workers as some sectors expand while others contract? And how will all of this change be accomplished within our existing political system, which already has its fair share of tensions and challenges?
This one-day conference will highlight some of the biggest policy challenges Canada faces in the years ahead as it determines its path toward a cleaner and hopefully more prosperous future.
