Canada’s Energy Future in an Age of Climate Change: How Partisanship, Polarization and Parochialism are Eroding Public Confidence
Growing levels of political and economic uncertainty, partisanship, parochialism and polarization within and beyond Canada are creating an increasingly challenging environment for those charting Canada’s energy future. The latest report of the University of Ottawa’s Positive Energy initiative articulates why Canada is facing these challenges, what their impacts are on public confidence in energy and climate decision-makers, and what needs to be done to move forward.
The report, Canada’s Energy Future in an Age of Climate Change: How Partisanship, Polarization and Parochialism are Eroding Public Confidence, unpacks the core challenges and opportunities when it comes to building confidence in public authorities making decisions about Canada’s energy future in an age of climate change. These fundamental questions form the agenda for Positive Energy’s next three-year phase of research and engagement.
Positive Energy has begun its next three-year phase, Canada's Energy Future in an Age of Climate Change. With the new research phase comes a new Advisory Council. We are delighted to announce that Nik Nanos, Chair and CEO of Nanos Research will Chair the new Positive Energy Advisory Council.
