Clean Energy Canada is a climate and clean energy think tank within the Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University.
We work to accelerate our nation’s transition to clean and renewable energy systems by telling the story of the global shift to clean and low-carbon energy sources. We conduct original research, host dialogues and aim to inspire and inform policy leadership.
We envision a future in which our nation has one of the most advanced energy systems in the world, having significantly reduced its carbon emissions by the middle of this century. In our vision, Canada has become a leader in clean and renewable energy production, consumption, and innovation—benefiting citizens socially, environmentally and economically.
