Cherise Burda ans Roger Peters – The Pembina Institute
The purpose of this solutions paper is to describe how Ontario’s base load power can be met through the deployment of renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) technologies as presented in The Pembina Institute and WWF-Canada’s Renewable is Doable report under green scenarios.
This Renewable is Doable solutions paper addresses the misconception of the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) that large-scale nuclear or coal generation is required to meet Ontario’s residual base load demand for electricity. It argues that it is doable to put the right technical, regulatory and policy tools in place to make renewable power the primary source of power for the future.
Other jurisdictions that are leading the way in using RE technology as base load power are also presented here.
