Episode #91: The Brief: Opportunities and Realities for Canada’s Energy Transition

2022 drastically changed the global realities around energy. Between the war in Ukraine, fluctuating energy prices, Europe’s energy crisis, and a steadfast commitment to a low-carbon energy transition, the future of energy no longer looks like it once did.

But present within that changing reality is a new opportunity to be a global leader in the energy space, and it is now up to each country to decide how best to respond.

On this episode, we’re joined by energy expert, Jackie Forrest, Executive Director at ARC Energy Research Institute and co-host of the ARC Energy Ideas Podcast.

We speak with Jackie about the future of Canada’s energy systems, the opportunities and realities present in Canada’s energy transition ahead of our 2030 and 2050 goals, and the challenges we must overcome to be successful.
