NEW WHITE PAPER


For a Sustained
Canadien Energy
Systems Modelling
Initiative


This white paper produced by the Institut de l'énergie Trottier and IQcarbone, with the financial support of the Clean Economy Fund, presents best practices for integrating energy modelling into canadian policy making.


Based on the review of best practices in four differents jurisdictions, this report recommend that the Canadian federal government commit resources to establish a permanent energy systems modelling initiative (ESMI) that would:
  1. Acquire or commission energy systems models that are in the public space, and managed to be open access, open source and transparent to trained users across Canada.
     
  2. Make use of existing institutions to establish and sustain energy systems modelling knowledge infrastructure in a manner that reflects Canada’s varied regions.
     
  3. Support coordination of modelling, analysis and communication efforts across the country to ensure openness and independence, as well as collaboration, comparisons, exchanges and innovation.
THE TROTTIER ENERGY FUTURES PROJECT CONTINUES TO INFLUENCE REFLECTIONS IN CANADA

Released on September 6, the Conference Board of Canada's report on the cost of energy transition relies heavily on the scenarios ans results of the Trottier Energy Futures Project (2016).

The report, wich provides an analysis of the economic impacts of GHG emission reductions, is avalaible here.
NEW PROJECT : RETHINKING THE ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC ACTION 

The IET wants to force reflection and open dialogue

The IET has mobilized 20 experts in governance, management and environmental issues to discuss ways to reduce GHG emissions. They will propose a new Quebec model of governance, in order to coordinate environmental efforts with greater coherence.

This proposal will also be carried by a citizen's voice, since the population will be invited in the coming months to propose its ideas, on a platform of exchanges open to all. All political parties were also invited to participate in the exercise.

The initiative is supported by the Institut du Nouveau Monde and supported financially by the Fonds de recherche du Québec, led by Chief Scientist Rémi Quirion.
