Energy diversity is a key to Canada’s economic future. World energy demand is expected to increase, and Canada could be a major supplier. Canada must find markets beyond the US. Indigenous partnerships will become the norm, not the exception. Oil and gas will continue to play a role in supplying our energy needs.

Canada's energy policy is guided by a series of principles, agreements and accords. The main principles of our energy policy are: A market orientation Markets are the most efficient means of determining supply, demand, prices and trade while ensuring an efficient, competitive and innovative energy system that is responsive to Canada's energy needs.

This is a long-overdue insightful analysis Canadas energy policy not only Canada’s oil and gas industry, but also the economic and political framework within which it operates. The term "energy" is often used interchangeably with the term "power," but incorrectly so.

Energy is defined as the capacity to do work and is measured in joules (J) or watt hours (1 Wh = J). Power is the work done per unit time and is measured in watts (W), ie, joules per second. Energy is subdivided into 2 categories, primary and secondary.

Renewable energy key facts. Renewable energy is generated from solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydropower and ocean resources, solid biomass, biogas and liquid biofuels; Wind and solar photovoltaic energy are the fastest growing sources of electricity in Canada; % of Canada’s energy comes from renewables; Learn more about renewable energy.

As ofrenewable energy technologies provide about % of Canada’s total primary energy supply and about 67% of its electricity production. The majority of renewable energy produced in Canada comes from supplied 58% of total electricity production in making Canada the second largest producer of hydroelectric power globally.

Canada is fortunate to have an abundant supply of energy from a wide range of renewable and non-renewable sources. Canada is the second-largest country in the world after Russia; it contains 10 provinces, and three territories that use six time zones covering four-and-half hours, and stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, and up to the Arctic Ocean.

Canada's energy sector may be significantly impacted by the recent election of liberal Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister. The last nine years have seen conservative Stephen Harper at the helm. A known ally of the energy industry, Harper came under attack by environmentalists for failing to do enough to reduce carbon emissions.in those making decisions about Canada’s energy future in an age of climate change – the focus of Positive Energy’s next three years of research and engagement – will be shaped fundamentally by many factors specific to energy (e.g., the role of local and Indigenous governments, the future for oil and gas, social acceptance of energy.The economy of Canada is a highly developed market economy.

It is the 10th largest GDP by nominal and 16th largest GDP by PPP in the world. As with other developed nations, the country's economy is dominated by the service industry which employs about three quarters of Canadians.
