Canada’s Energy Future 2023: Energy Supply and Demand Projections to 2050

Canada’s Energy Future series explores how possible energy futures might unfold for Canadians over the long term. Canada’s Energy Future 2023 focuses on the challenge of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. For the first time, we explore net-zero scenarios to help Canadians and policy makers see what a net-zero world could look like. Our scenarios cover all energy commodities and all Canadian provinces and territories. We use economic and energy models to do this analysis.
