Renewable energy and clean technology are growth industries both globally and within Canada, with the opportunity to drive trillions of dollars in investment as the world moves on its commitments to fight climate change.
Federally and at the provincial level, governments are increasingly implementing policies to meet their climate change commitments, support growth in these sectors, and position Canadian companies for success in the transition to a low carbon economy. This public policy framework is critical as it must address commercialization and competitiveness challenges to drive innovation and adoption of these technologies.
