Atlantic Canada is undergoing an energy transition that will impact energy production, energy consumption, employment prospects and long-term investment decisions. To effectively support this transition while enabling sustainable economic growth, it is necessary to understand the effects, synergies, and limitations of regional decarbonization strategies. Yet, the complexity of energy systems in Atlantic Canada makes intuitive conclusions nearly impossible. Energy system modelling enables a user to evaluate alternative scenarios to meet interim and long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. This webinar explores how an open-source energy system model of Atlantic Canada’s energy system can help policy makers, industry, researchers and NGOs contribute to possible next steps on the path to net-zero GHG emissions.
