Public Confidence on the Road to Net Zero (2022-2027)
The current phase of Positive Energy aims to help Canada strengthen public confidence in energy policy, regulation and decision-making for net zero. Research and engagement are focused on helping Canada move from the ‘what’ to the ‘how’ of emissions reductions, with a primary emphasis on developing integrated approaches to energy and climate, identifying institutional innovations that support change, and fostering cross-country collaboration. Activities of this phase will cover the following areas:
- Regulation: how to develop effective and trusted regulatory frameworks to achieve energy and climate objectives.
- Energy Security: how to ensure domestic and global energy security (affordability, reliability, availability) alongside emissions reductions.
- Intergovernmental collaboration: how to foster effective intergovernmental relations among federal, provincial, territorial, Indigenous and municipal governments to achieve energy and climate objectives.
- Public Opinion: how to foster ongoing public and expert support for Canada’s net zero journey.
