Canada's Leading Approach: embracing transmission technologies to accelerate the energy transition
October 13, 2020
Canada has set ambitious climate targets – net zero carbon emissions by 2050 with plans for legally binding 5-year milestones. To meet these goals, Canada is targeting $27B in green infrastructure investment in just the next decade. The electric industry will play a critical role in achieving Canada’s climate targets and delivering this investment.
The WATT (Working for Advanced Transmission Technologies) Coalition hosted a thought-provoking discussion about how the Canadian electric industry is leveraging innovation to facilitate this transition quickly, affordably and with low environmental impact.
Leaders from government, key industry associations, and network owners and operators provided a variety of perspectives on how the industry is fostering innovation and embracing technology to accelerate the energy transition.
