Policy Crunch - Energy Transition: Does a Sweet Spot Exist?

In the debate over climate change and energy in Canada, positions can easily be polarized between those who place priority on reducing our domestic emissions of greenhouse gases and those who wish to develop our energy resources and drive economic growth.

Are these two pursuits in fact irreconcilable or does a "sweet "spot" exist that can form a foundation of a Canadian strategy that will make the best contribution to both our environment and our prosperity?

This latest panel in the Policy Crunch Series will discuss how best Canada can transition to a less carbon intensive future. Panelists will share their insights and support a discussion on the challenges and opportunities.

Panelists

Dr. Monica Gattinger​, Director of the University of Ottawa's Institute for Science, Society and Policy, and Chair of the Institute's Collaboratory on Energy Research and Policy.

Serge Dupont, Senior Advisor Bennett Jones and prior a senior executive in the Government of Canada. In 2019, served in PCO as Senior Executive Advisor for the TMX pipeline project.

Scott Vaughan​, International Chief Advisor to the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED) and an IISD Senior Fellow​.
