Electrification and Investment in Electricity Infrastructure

Canada’s electricity sector has the potential to play a central role in the country’s transition to a low emission economy and in meeting Paris Agreement emission reduction commitments.

Submission to the Electrification & Energy Transition Panel

Submission to the Electrification & Energy Transition Panel

The Electrification and Energy Transition Panel (EETP) was asked to identify opportunities to improve
Ontario’s long-term energy planning framework. Long-term planning is essential for Ontario’s energy
sector. Energy assets have long lives, technologies are rapidly changing, and environmental and social
pressures are increasingly salient. The Panel’s work is thus critical to enhancing Ontario’s energy sector
planning and regulatory processes. Energy Centre faculty Brandon Schaufele, Adam Fremeth, and Brian Rivard respond with a technical recommendation to support the EETP's mandate.
