Access to one of the cleanest electric systems in the world will help to support Ontario’s transition to net-zero, and we need a plan to make the most of this invaluable climate change asset — a roadmap that emphasizes how our diverse supply mix can power a reliable, scalable and sustainable energy transition.
Ontario’s Minister of Energy recently announced Powering Ontario’s Growth – a report that is the government’s response to last year’s Pathways to Decarbonization report and commits to significant actions to ensure the province is prepared to sustainably manage growth in energy demand.
This is an important direction for energy planning that leverages Ontario’s clean energy advantage, but there is still more work to be done. Government must provide a clearer, more detailed energy roadmap that emphasizes maximizing our existing energy resources. Bold leadership on this front is needed now more than ever.
Between 2005 and 2018, Ontario’s electricity system carbon emissions were reduced by 90 per cent. Today, Ontario’s electricity system is 90 per cent emissions free and has one of the lowest carbon intensity rates in the world.
Ontario also leads almost every state in the U.S. Even high renewables states like California have much higher electricity CO2 intensity than Ontario.
In fact, Ontario has one of the cleanest electricity grids in the world, accounting for just 3% of our province's total GHG emissions.
Balanced access to nuclear, hydroelectric, biomass, natural gas, wind, and solar generation makes our grid our most reliable asset in our fight against climate change.
Our energy system is one of the cleanest systems in the world – 90% emissions free – and will guide Canada’s journey to net-zero.
Ontario’s clean energy grid means that we can lead Canada as the nation's net-zero innovation leader.
Making significant progress towards reducing Ontario’s overall carbon emissions means reducing emissions across ALL economic sectors, including the industrial, transportation and building sectors, which together accounted for 75% per cent of our province’s total GHG emissions in 2021. See how access to one of the cleanest electricity grids in the world will help drive economy-wide decarbonization and maximize the impact of climate-conscious choices Ontarians make every day.
Choosing electric vehicles is a critical way consumers can support a cleaner climate. The energy mix used to power those vehicles matters.View this
