Electrification: From the What to the How

The Institute for Science, Society and Policy invites you to a special presentation by Allan Fogwill, President and CEO of the Canadian Energy Research Institute, on "Electrification: From the What to the How." Mr. Fogwill will discuss a newly released report called "Greenhouse Gas Emissions reductions in Canada through Electrification of Energy Services."

An economy-wide transition from current fuel-based energy use to one dominated by electricity may be able to satisfy future energy demands, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This would require changing an array of devices, such as vehicles, across all sectors of the economy as well as a much larger electricity generation and transmission infrastructure than exists today. This presentation will address the significant economic impacts resulting from new investments, stranded assets, and changes to oil, gas and electricity markets across Canada.

ISSP Director Monica Gattinger will chair the session. A moderated panel discussion with energy leaders will follow Mr. Fogwill's remarks.  

Tuesday, January 17, 2017,  4:00 - 5:30 PM EST
