Canada, like most countries, has ambitious climate targets: an 80 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.

A new study called the Canadian Energy Outlook - Horizon 2050, prepared by the Institut de l'énergie Trottier (Polytechnique Montréal) and e3Hub (HEC Montréal), suggests current reduction efforts are inadequate to meet these promises. Yet, the study also suggests the targets are far from being out of reach — thanks in part to the rapid decline in the cost of transforming our energy sector to low carbon emission technologies.

The study, based on techno-economic modelling done by the Montréal firm ESMIA, explored five scenarios for the energy system in Canada and each province until 2050.
