The 2022 International Energy Efficiency Scorecard is out. Produced by our colleagues at the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, it assesses the policies and performance of the world’s top 25 energy consuming countries. In this blog, we dig into the results, and discuss what we can learn to improve energy efficiency in Canada.
The federal government released its 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, which lays out actions to guide Canada towards a national goal of 40-45% GHG emission below 2005 levels by 2030. Energy efficiency features prominently throughout.
The federal government has a clear mandate to accelerate GHG reductions and create a net-zero emissions future. To do that, we need to retrofit almost every building in Canada to be highly energy efficient and to use zero-carbon energy sources.
The Prime Minister of Canada released the “mandate letters” to federal Ministers. Here are energy efficiency highlights from the letters, with some added context.
The federal government released an updated climate plan, aiming to set Canada on a path to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, and to exceed the Paris agreement 2030 targets. Here is what it means for energy efficiency.
