The electricity angle and climate change

Electrification, infrastructure, and emissions reductions



AIMS is proud to host Allan Fogwill, President and CEO of the Canadian Energy Research Institute, to present findings from their recent study “Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions in Canada Through Electrification of Energy Services”

Climate change is a hot topic of discussion among business and political types and through society at large. What role does our electricity grid play in reducing GHG emissions? What transitions are required in energy end-use, what are the associated costs, and how might this be achieved?

The talk will focus on the viability of electrification as a climate change mitigation strategy, its benefits and complications.
